Kate

Light switches

“Doooddl, Dooooddl” I wonder what the heck Kate is trying to say as I’m putting clothes away. I keep going about my business, but she keeps repeating herself and looking at one object so clearly she isn’t just babbling…so I stop for a moment to try and figure out what she is saying, and it dawns on me. She is trying to talk to our Google home, and is saying, “Google” I pull out my phone to record this epic moment and then continue with the laundry. As I’m hanging cloths, I’m thinking about the situation that just unfolded and think about the implications; there is a good chance that this kiddo will live in a world without light switches (one of the main things we use the Google Home for in our bedroom). This blows my mind a little. How could my own child grow up in a lifetime that has lights that are only voice or motion activated? This technology advancement seems so future state, but is it really? Considering smart lights and voice activated devices weren’t even a thing when Lexi was born…the adoption of this technology over the next 5 years could mean Kate may very well live in a world without light switches. Small concept, but kind of mind blowing at the same time.
