Smart elevators

2003-09-12 21:57:27.284055+00 by Dan Lyke 4 comments

Among other things, I want a smart badge in my wallet that tells the elevator that I'm going to floor 2 or the ground, unless I hit another button in some small interval.

The extroverted forward thinkers who write sci-fi prefer an elevator you have to tell what floor you want to go to. They like interaction with the outside world. Obviously, you don't want to come out of your shell long enough to push a button on the wall ;)

Of course, in some science fiction novels the elevator tells YOU where to get off...

In fact, it might even be the voice of Sean Connery telling you where to get off.

You know, I think some of us probably wouldn't mind Sean Connery telling us to get off...
