A group of US lawmakers are working on legislation to shore up security on the internet of things.

Facebook's experimental Building 8 lab has been hard at work on a video chat device with a touchscreen, about the size of a laptop screen, that will include a smart camera for tracking moving objects in its view. The device could be announced at its F8 conference next Spring.
