Haha. Glad I’m not completely alone in thinking this good news. I think technology has huge potential to improve the lives of disabled people.
No, it’s not going to be able to offer personal care for the foreseeable future, but imagine having a fully automated house, where you could draw the curtains, adjust the heating, switch lights, TV on and off, make and receive phone calls etc, all from your wheelchair or armchair. Basically have control over your environment, without having to ask someone: “Could you switch that on for me? Could you turn the heating down, I’m hot!” and so on.
Of course, I’m sure it will greatly appeal to lazy people, as well.
I remember, in my student days, two fellow students turning up at our flatshare for the evening, because…wait for it…their TV remote was broken! Oh the hardship, having to change channel manually. How did we ever manage?
Mmmm, ice cream - yum! Too bad it’s only virtual ice cream. The van will be round in about five hours!
