A Parking Car

by @ 11:02 am. Filed under Pop Culture

The automotive industry has wowed the world with its latest innovation. It is a car that parks itself. I love the advertisement…One older person remembers cleaning clothes using a washboard and a second person explains how he would hold a set of rabbit ears to get reception on his black and white TV…then finally the camera pans to a driver sitting in his brand new Lexus. The steering wheel begins to slowly move on its own and he says “I remember the old days when I had to parallel-park the car myself”. That’s right… you pull up to a parking space and press a button and the car parks itself. It is an incredible innovation and it makes me wonder what other astounding inventions lie in the future and how long it will be before they become reality… yes,…I wonder how long before…
How long will it be before there is a garden rake that has a force field that attracts leaves? Just lay it in the middle of your lawn and the leaves are drawn directly to it?
And…how long will it be before there is a TV that selects programming for you, based on your personality?
And…how long will be before there is a snowblower that automatically starts on contact with snow and navigates your driveway while you sleep?
And…how long will it be before there is a machine that washes, drys and “folds” your laundry?
How long, I wonder…how long…
