Scarier Than Black Mirror: 13 Real-Life Tech Horror Stories

-

Black Mirror season 3 warns viewers of a spooky technologically advanced future; its first episode depicting a society where everyone rates every person they interact with, no matter how minor, and your rating determines everything.

Yes, Black Mirror heavy-handedly preaches the horrors of tech, but truth be told, we already live in a scary-ass technologically advanced society. Facebook and Snapchat have your biometric data. (Who owns your face?) AI is racist. The robot from Ex Machina is a reality, but she’s just not as hot. Truth, as it turns out, is scarier than fiction.

So turn off Netflix, and strap yourself in for a dose of real life. Here are 13 real- tech horror stories far spookier than Black Mirror!
