1. Google glasses. Apparently, it's like wearing a computer on your face! With these things on, you will enjoy notifications and updates flooding your retinas ALL. DAY. LONG. You're driving down the road and you want to know the temperature? How to get to the nearest Wendy's? How your March Madness bracket is doing? Who's tagging who on facebook? BAM! But seriously, they actually seem kinda cool, even if I'm a bit overwhelmed by the idea. And you can't beat that fashion. So chic. Right?
2. A 3D printer. Apparently, you can print up anything you can think up! We watched a video yesterday of a guy printing up a little plastic whistle. Chad says this is the future of dentistry. I am documenting it so he can say he called it before they were popular. Also cool, and also a little overwhelming. Are we so opposed to delaying gratification that we need to have a means to "print out" anything we want, whenever we want?
3. LED lightbulbs. We also watched a fancy shmancy video on these babies a few weeks ago. Apparently (do you like how much I'm using that word? I don't mean to sound like such a skeptic), you can control everything about these lights from your smart phone or computer. Turn them off while lying in bed, adjust the intensity, change the colors, create a light show right in your own home!
And those, my friends, are the things my husband desperately wants for his birthday and which I have no means to provide for him. Oh, this is sad. Really though, don't these inventions seem fake? Like, straight out of a sci-fi movie from like, 3 years ago. Unbelievable.
