If you face long days that start early in the morning and end late in the evening, you understand how important it is that you bring everything you need for the day. Of course, life being the spontaneous little nugget of joy that it is, you never know what you need. While food and water are your main concerns to help keep you alive, you never quite know what sort of tools you may be in want of throughout the day.
Now that the world has gotten a whole lot more technologically inclined, it goes without saying that it is a whole lot easier to smuggle in electronics into what looks like an ordinary smartphone or tablet accessory – like a charger, for instance. Underneath all of the phony exterior of what looks like a phone charger, lies the internal components of a spy device. In fact, this spy device is full well capable of figuring out every single keystroke that you make via a wireless keyboard.
Going to school teaches you plenty of important things such as history, math and reading comprehension, but being a book worm will only get you so far. You need a variety of unorthodox skills to make it in this world, one of which could be picking a lock. This is not to say that you should use your powers for evil, but to help yourself when you forget your key to the house or lock yourself out of your car.
Have you ever been in a situation where you wished you could see in the dark? How about your last late night dog-walking session when you were certain you heard an animal lurking in the woods? or the night you thought someone was trying to get into your car? I can think of quite a few instances that being able to see where someone is (or recently was) could be a very useful tool. Where am I going to get a super power like that?
When the doorbell rings and you aren’t expecting company, you can’t really know who to expect. It could be a salesperson trying to get you to buy a vacuum, someone trying to convert you to their religion, or the police (hopefully it’s never the police). If you’d prefer to screen who comes to your porch without having to answer immediately, it would be nice to have a sort of caller ID. However, you’ll need some equipment to make that happen.
There are days when life wants to throw us a curve ball, and it’s always something we never expect coming out of nowhere. Usually you can recover from this sort of thing relatively easily, but it will knock you off-balance. Of course, there are also days where life fancies pelting us with rocks. This is the day that everything breaks, explodes, and just plain goes wrong. Most people aren’t going to carry every tool in the garage on them, however, it would be nice if we could shrink down those tools and bring them with us.
Is the world changing? Or has it always been a scary place, and I am only recognizing it now that I have a child. Perhaps its just the media, bringing to our attention every gory detail of just how badly we treat each other? In any case, I lie in bed at night and wonder how to keep my daughter safe, and to be honest, I’d like all the help I can get.
We are all getting used to the idea of a connected home. It feels good to have the security of knowing your house is being looked after, when your not there. Some of the set-ups seem a little more complicated than others. So it would be nice to have a simple device, easy to install, that kept an eye on things, and could notify me of any problems.
Ah to be a dog… as I sit here now, watching my pooch reposing on the couch, legs in the air, snoring gently, I realize that in my next life, I’m coming back as someones beloved pet. From what I can see, it would be a great deal. Of course, there are parts of her life that I don’t see. Like what she does when I’m not home, and where she went when she took off after that squirrel…
