What is personal data in an age when our data is everything but personal? Our websites, apps, social media and ‘smart’ devices all thrive on the same thing that makes tech companies billions – data. Not just any data, but our data.

In 2030 there will be an estimated 125 billion connected devices – 14 for each person. That’s a lot of smart toothbrushes. Will all these new technologies really make our lives more efficient, healthier and safer?

The Glass Room Experience explores the companies and mechanisms that make our everyday technologies as well as connect the Internet of Things (IoT). Play Fake or Real to see how smart you are in the world of smart devices. Find out more about what’s really happening behind the screen in The Internet You Don’t See. Pick up a free Data Detox Kit, an easy, 8-day digital privacy guide that gives you simple steps to take control of your online life, not to mention your smart devices.

Privacy Salon and Muntpunt present to you a new edition of The Glass Room Experience (a concept by Tactical Technology Collective). The central theme will be the Internet of Things. Earlier, The Glass Room Experience was also on show in London, New York, Warsaw… Curious? Just stop by Muntpunt, we will be happy to guide you through the exhibition.
