There are some technologies that are real game changers in our personal lives. Take for example the vacuuming robot. At first glance, it seems frivolous… until you realize that for what it costs to hire a housekeeper for two or three visits, you can come home every single day to a house that has just been vacuumed— without having to nag your kids to do it. If your budget allows for it, this invention can return a few needed hours to your week.
Warning: Even a perfectly functional, well-programmed robot can get into trouble. I have a sweet old dog named Spot and one day I was late getting home to let her out. Have you ever wondered what happens when a vacuuming robot steps in poo? To make a long, messy story short, I will just say that if you have pets, it may make sense to program it to run when you are at home— just in case.
