What I would like is for the house to take care of me, rather than me taking care of the house. I know that's how the future will go. You can see it starting with things like the roomba and automatic lawn mowers. I want the house to be aware of the people in it. Turn up the heat (or AC) before people come home. Adjust the blinds throughout the day to maximize energy efficiency. Turn off the stereo when I leave and lock the house. Unlock the house when I come home. Turn on the bathroom fan when it's stinky or humid. Keep track of how much food is in the fridge and what needs to be reordered. Sync / push the grocery list to my phone / mobile device or just send the order directly to the store so I can go pick it up without spending an extra 45 minutes looking for the dried cranberries. Give me a heads up that Laura's on her way home. Scrub the toilet automatically daily because that's something I really, really hate doing.
I do believe that we're living in the future. I just want all the parts to catch up to my expectations.Posted by jim at July 14, 2010 06:15 PM
