Hi /tesla/

Do you have any projects you wish you could automate? If you had a magic box you could plug anything into and have all of those things work in concert, what would you plug in?

Coffee machine for one, something that could fill, coffee, then clean itself.

Cleaning dishes, and I mean literally something that would pick up dishes and clean those fuckers itself. It would be more difficult than something that could cook automatically, but with 3d printers and home-object-AI improving I probably won't have to wait a decade for either.

An automated real-time back-up system would be nice, something with which I could easily control the power state of the drive, as well as perform a complete back-up live. Probably easy to do on Linux already but what can you do.

A room re-configurer would be nice. Something that could store stuff in one space, and then when you wanted tables instead of shelves, or say standing up an easel or laying an electric keyboard instead of having to get all that shit out yourself and having to have dedicated space to it would be convenient.

Sounds like most of your projects have more to do with chores at home than industry. I should clarify. Does anyone have a process they wish they could automate?

The legal system.
Medical diagnosis.
Tax system.

These are far easier goals than physical things being automated.

Food production
optimising and automating this would probaly be able to get rid of a lot of problems.

And also; not something to automate but this would really help the advance of sustainable power (I mean wind and solar, not biomass): Large scale, cost effective energy styorage. In my opinion this is holding back the sustainable tech the most at this point.
If there are more people around here interested in a sustainable energy discussion please let me know, I`m happy to discuss this topic and hopefully learn something from you guys!

The shower. I would automate my shower. Fuck washing myself. Also, if you don't think this could be industry, people have historically gone to bath houses in many cultures for longer than we have existing records of it. People still pay to use such facilities, even as necessity. Shit, the shower is a bigger motivation for a lot of travelers to get a hotel room than for the bed.

So yeah, bathe me.
