Watch Dogs! It's a virtual version of an automated American city where everything is hackable. Total fantasy, right? Well...

The always-fantastic Jake over at Vsauce3 has an breakdown of how the connected technology we are becoming dependent on is gradually making us weak and exploitable. The world imagined in Watch Dogs is getting more and more real every day (minus the flaming horsey rides and unstoppable cop cars).

Thanks for the reminder that I will never truly be safe, Jake! If you need me, I'll be over here smelting down my iPhone and burning off my fingertips with lye.
