Default The Internet of Dildos Is Watching You

Umm....

As increasingly banal devices come online as the latest additions to the internet of things, it was inevitable that sex toys would get added into the mix. Known as teledildonics, the realm of internet connected sex toys has been heralded as the future of sex for years now, and as with all internet connected devices, these toys are liable to get hacked.

It makes sense. Look at any phone app- why would a game need camera access, for example, unless it's part of the game? It's only logical that sex toys, if they have access to the internet, could be theoretically hackable.

Just a logic flowchart. Not a patent diagram. At least not in the sense that I understand it.

It isn't the main patent image (the front page image) but for a software invention it can be all that is needed.
