Talking household appliances of the future

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Bass Viking, Apr 22, 2010.


  1. In the years to come we can expect to see home appliances that speak. Like the wisecraking scale. When you step on, it says "Hey, one at a time!"

    I don't even want to think of what your toilet will utter. :bag:

    I know, crazy idea but they had them on The Flintstones.
     
  2. Cheech's voice saying, "Oh, man... what died?"
     
  3. What if your bass started talking to you?

    "Pull my G string...." "WHAT?!" "Oh, nothing!"

    It would be too traumatized to talk :D
     
  9. IPV6 will make everything connected and interactive via the Internet - so you can message your toilet if you want.

    This already exists in some households. Draw your bath while driving home - once the Networks catch up - you will see amazing things. We are still to some degree bandwidth and address strapped.

    Imagine, for example, attaching your favorite Movie to an e-mail and sending like you do a document attachment today. The recipient would received it in a few seconds, be able to download it in a few seconds and watch it on their TV or TV/Computer as convergence will continue where there will be no distinction. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

    My fridge would say 'Another beer? Already?' everytime I opened it.

    My toaster already talks, but it might be retarded as it only makes this loud 'Chk' sound.
     
  11. I often say this to my toilet. :)
     
  12. Auto Courtesy Flush On! :D
