Yes, this is real. I've gotten, over the last month, recommendations by Facebook for at least 3 or 4 different brands of such devices. For each one, hundreds of positive comments and virtually no negative comments or reactions. Which just... I cannot begin to fathom how people can see these devices being advertised and not be horrified and terrified that such devices A. Exist. B. Are legal to buy, sell, and own. C. Apparently have hundreds, even thousands of fans, and virtually no detractors.
Whoever runs the social media for the latest one I've been railing against in the comments keeps telling me more about the device, trying to make me see how great it is, but every damn thing they say about is just even more high-octane nightmare fuel that makes me even more convinced that such devices should be illegal, and that everyone who makes, sells, and buys such devices should be in prison, and all the plans and patents for them incinerated.
