Technology has produce a myriad of labor-saving devices such as the dishwasher, garbage disposal and microwave oven. But, experts say we're on the verge of a microprocessor explosion which will bring even more time and labor-saving conveniences into our homes.
Consider those little bar codes you see on everything at the grocery store. They make checkout a faster, more efficient process. But how about a microwave that can scan a bar code in a special cookbook and automatically cook your food according to the recipe? This is already a reality in Japan.
How about a master digital clock that could reset all the clocks in the house when the power fails or when the clocks need to be moved forward or backward?
How would you like a freezer-to-microwave system that drops a frozen meal into the oven and cooks it according to a pre-programmed direction?
The application of technology in the home holds unlimited possibilities. So if you're not comfortable with computers and high-tech gadgets, better find a kid who can teach you.
