Once the Future, Now the Present
Todays’ homes feature automation that once was only a fantasy.
When I was a kid I used to love sitting around watching cartoons. One of my favorites was The Jetsons. I remember George getting home from work, exiting his little spaceship car, then up the vacuum tube style elevator into his home. Once inside he was greeted by his robot dog Astro, and his robot maid.
Some of the things I saw were so cool, but who would have ever thought some of those things would become present day technology that we take for granted everyday when we use them. One episode even had a kid watching The Flintstone’s on a small computer type device attached to his wrist. Aka: today’s Apple Watch!
They would speak to activate devices in the home. Now we have Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and so on.
Now, when we get the spaceship style flying car, that automatically folds into a briefcase, we’ll be getting somewhere!
