Recently, I stumbled quite unexpectedly across a product called X-10. It’s a technology that lets your computer run your house electronics. They have a product for everything… lights, cameras, action, speakers.
Some day, if on the odd chance I become so incredibly rich that I couldn’t possibly do anything with my money, I plan to build a house that turns on my lights for me, opens my doors, tells me the time, warns of intruders, and wakes me up every morning at a good time (seriously, there’s a guy who’s done this. looky here.)
Until then, sigh. Flip switch, see light, clap hands, sigh again.
