I came across this video on Reddit a few days ago, and I just had to share. This is the reset procedure for a type of GE smart bulb. You’d do this procedure if your bulb stopped responding to commands from the app. If you owned this thing, pray it never does.
I don’t think I can recall a bigger example of overengineering in my entire life. I can just imagine that GE engineers mapping out dozens of flow charts, followed by many, many meetings.
At some point, maybe somewhere around the 8th or 9th on-off switch, it ceases to seem real and starts looking like an Onion video. It’s like the real life version of Sideshow Bob and the rakes.
