70% of people would be willing to have a smart toilet share their personal data.
Geege Schuman stashed this in Healthcare
The results of a new survey from Intel and Penn Schoen Berland say that 70% of people in 8 countries would be willing to share data from their smart toilet (pdf) if it would mean lower healthcare costs. An even higher proportion, 84%, would be willing to share their vital statistics, like blood pressure or basic lab tests, and 75% would be comfortable giving up information gathered by a health monitor they could swallow, even though that’s far more intrusive than a toilet that tweets that you’ve had enchiladas three nights running.
Take away: People are willing to do ANYTHING to lower their healthcare costs.
Sounds right. Healthcare costs have gotten ridiculously high.
