I have a toothbrush that's set for two minutes. Sometimes that two minutes seems like a long time and brushing teeth is so boring.

I just gargle a denture cleaning tablet for 6 minutes.

A machine that puts dishes in the sink in the dishwasher for you. I mean I'm fine with doing dishes, but it would be nice. Tongue

I know, you're saying "just put them directly in the dishwasher." Well guess what? Maybe I will.

This already exists as a fleshbot- varying forms are GF 2.8, Wife 11.0 or maid 1.0. Evil_monster

J/K, in our house, the youngest son is assigned the job of loading, running and unloading the dishwasher. Since he's almost 27 and doesn't pay rent (he finally has a job), he has a bunch of things he has to do instead.

I was driving back to Montreal from Ottawa last night and thinking about how awesome it will be when a Google can do the driving while I sleep.

I expect this to be available by 2020, Google. Or else.

Speaking as someone that works in the auto industry (not a designer or anything cool like that) I can say "not likely to happen very soon, much like the "flying car" or "personal jetpack". Sorry. Drinking Beverage

"Driver assisted" this & that, okay... but getting a machine to understand the complexity of world conditions...









And I haven't yet seen any tests in rain, high wind or snow conditions, etc...

Mind/Machine interface. Yeah that's all I want. I can't use VR so I want the much better thing instead.

The requirement of evidence to back your claim does not disappear because it hurts your feelings, reality does not care about your feefees.

The ancient Romans used to gargle urine.

If we're not on our way to something like Star Fleet before I die, I'm going to be really pissed.
