It’s funny how many little things seem to take up so much time. We used to live life without the constant hum of gadgets and technology around us, but now we can’t picture life without it. One of the greatest tasks we now face is trying to cut down the time we have to spend doing this and that tiny chore.
There comes a time in everyone’s lives where you feel like you are the key master. There are keys for old apartments, your parents house, pad locks, car keys, and much, much more. While we don’t want to be without a key we need, they can get to be a bit on the loud side in your bag or pocket. Likely because it’s a piece of metal dangling on a ring next to a bunch of other pieces of metal.
Waking up in the middle of the night with a severe need to use the bathroom or get a glass of water leaves you very disoriented. You could have lived in the same spot for over ten years, and will still run into a piece of furniture or the door frame en route to your destination. The one thing that would help you snake through these obstacles is a bit of light, but flipping on the main lightswitch is only going to blind you.
It’s nice to have someone to talk to. However, there are times where you just want to vent, and no matter the amount of friends you have, it doesn’t feel right complaining about your own burdens. If you don’t want to go to therapy or yap at your pet for hours, then why not get a robot? It may seem silly, but what if that robot was also capable of being able to talk back to you with meaningful advice to give?
In this world, there are two types of soap. There is bar form that seems to last for a thousand years, and liquid soap which you find yourself buying more and more of all the time. If your preference is for the more stable form, then you know of the problems that come with it. Letting it sit in a bowl so it doesn’t slide around your tub or sink will leave it slimy or adhered to the container.
We all want our lives to be as easy and streamlined as possible. Our phones sync up with our computer, which can connect with automatic aspects of our homes. It’s all very easy, so long as everything is working as it should. If you like the idea of having a interconnected home, then you most likely want to control it all through your smartphone.
Staying on a good regimen of vitamins or needed medical prescriptions can be very difficult. It’s one more tiny thing to remember in a day, and while taking it with breakfast seems like a great idea, there are always those days we skip eating because we’re running late. Usually one of the last things you do before running out the door is brushing your teeth, because no one wants to sniff on some bad breath.
There will come a time when the capabilities of robots will start to become eerie. In a way, they’ve already reached this point as they can walk, talk, and sing, but not without someone telling them to (we’re still a few years off from robot lords taking over). For the moment, they’re more pets than anything as they require updating and maintenance just as any animal would need nourishment and grooming.
We look back fifty years ago, and think that life must have moved at a snail’s pace. You didn’t have to worry about checking multiple media outlets, constant text messages, and what seems like a non-stop pace of life. Technology has helped us do amazing things, but it also causes a sense of anxiety, and makes us feel like we’re always behind on need-to-know information.
Upon first waking up in the morning, we don’t exactly have complete control over our motor functions. You’re still coming out of a dream state, and reality doesn’t quite make sense just yet. During the week though, the only thing you know for certain is that your alarm clock is blaring, and needs to be shut off. Normally it ends up being slapped around until you hit the snooze button, which sometimes results in you being late for work.
