Peace of mind is a luxury that's newly accessible to a wider demographic thanks to innovations in anti-theft technology that infuse everyday devices with extra elements of security.
Gone are the days of using a flimsy bike lock and hoping for the best -- cities like Portland are implementing high-tech bike racks that come equipped with smartphone-enabled locks and security cameras, notifying users in real-time if someone touches their bike.
Socially connected purses can detonate at the click of a button, temporarily marking purse thieves with a pink smoke and ensuring they don't slip anonymously into the crowd.

As luxury and convenience becomes more ingrained in our culture, it's easy to forget about the societal dangers waiting to take advantage of our comfort.
