Automation, UBI, abundance - are you excited about the future?
« on: November 21, 2018, 06:16:47 pm »
I am. Besides all the opportunities and cool things and opportunities and cool things coming, pushing forward is the only thing to do.....unless you want to relinquish your lifestyle to cataclysm or puritanical intent.


If this is considered a P and R topic, feel free to (re)move it.

I heard Autobahn by Kraftwerk the day before Halloween. That sounds like the future to me.

The new levels of automation is a huge shift. I think certain classes of folks will find themselves getting squeezed as traditionally low experience style of work gets automated.

Check out this amazon warehouse fulfillment center video

The robots are bringing the shelves to a person who will fulfill your Amazon order.

I'm in the automation space. I think it'll be interesting to see how we adapt.

Yes please invent the self cleaning bathroom.

I have a bathroom cleaning fairy that magically does the job every day, but would like science to eventually take over the arcane arts.

Something like the auto wash in the 5th element.

If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.

Yeah.
Make the bathroom like a giant dish washer.
all tile, stainless, and porcelain.
Drain in the floor.
Water tight so you can soak the whole thing floor to ceiling overnight in a bleach mixture.....

Sonic and ultra-violet. You could also not make a mess. Works pretty well. Soon enough there will be a Mist of bio-devices that keeps everything ship-shape.

Heinlein described a self cleaning bathroom like 60 years ago.

You people set your sights too low.

I want a sex robot that also makes chicken wings.

Aren't they trying to open up a sex doll brothel somewhere in Texas? I thought I read that somewhere. You can go there and rent a sex doll hourly. Your dream is inching closer to reality.

Our city council shut that down. Was going to open like 3 miles away. I'm already on the same street as the human trafficking capital of the US, but where's the fun in that.

I've seen, only, that episode. We're there, and it will become more so. Most will play the game.
