I love working with my hands and figuring out how things work, but I’ve also got a keen mind towards the way things can work. I realized a long time ago that with all the tools and machines that we have today, there really is no good excuse for not having all of the intricate machines that advertising executives were showing us in the 1940s and 50s. Everything from smart toasters to self-cleaning kitchens and programmable vacuum cleaners has been achievable since the affordability of the personal computer. With the ever increasing size reduction of personal electronics and sensors, it’s high time we capitalized on all the available technology to truly make life easier. If I could earn a living do what I love, I’d spend all of my time taking all of the creative inventions that already exist in the world and combining them in new and unique ways in order to make life easier for everyone. Google’s self-driving cars are just the beginning. Imagine, if you will, millions of salinity sensors floating in the clouds, giving the weather report in a way no human ever could, or self-repairing roads; kitchens that cook dinner for you and any one of a hundred thousand other simple machines that can make things better for everyone.
