A smarthome concept that wasn't absolute hell: the mid-80s Soviet SPHINX project, based on the idea that there would be a central, modular PC and appliances in the house like the TV would connect to it via the LAN. Everything was designed to be easily-expandable or pared-down as needed. It was purely conceptual but the props looked cool as hell.

@Zero_Democracy Those are the least comfortable headphones I've seen in my life, and I want them

@BestGirlGrace The headphones are the weak point by a mile, but I'd happily eat shit there for a cohesive LAN instead of scuzzy IoT digital snitch bullshit.


@BestGirlGrace The thing that really gets me is a PC being a server, minus the Chromecast bullshit.

@Zero_Democracy Actual, good P2P networking with just phone lines? Rad as hell. Slowly moving to ethernet and wireless as tech improves, because it's modular.
