Daniel Herscovici does a great job explaining how incremential changes have compounded to create these incredibly innovative, but seemingly simple, home tech. He uses real life example so listeners can see how these small changes make a big difference, most notably creating piece of mind.
I guess my only question is that if these things were to grow into everything that we do... what if they disappeared all at once? Would society be in a state of complete anxiety because knowing everything is not an option? Does this make us less stable and more dependent? not sure if this would happen, just food for thought :)
