To help me along to that end, here’s the $130
talking Kelvin Thermostat. In
it’s for the elderly and disabled (though knowing my grandma, I can’t really imagine her entering into conversation with an appliance). The buttons speak aloud what they do when you adjust them, and you can dictate the temperature simply by speaking it aloud. One hopes it understands better than those automated phone systems (“Did you say…two hundred and thirty degrees?”).
Yes, the future is
here. I hope when it arrives, there’ll be no more need for flirting.
