    I would have one around for days that I'm feeling lazy. I like to cook, but I don't really like cooking for just me.

    I fear private industry doing this--your grocery store chain, your health insurance provider, etc. I mean, they already do this on a more limited scale that is fairly variable in its relaibility.
    I have noticed little bits of this already..The suggested for you thing in google news seems to be based on my viewing habits more than my online searching or even text or email. I think perhaps they have hooked up with other media sources to target ads..I notice at times the TV ads seem to "Know" my interests. With search's already I see if I check out say a certain product,an ad shows up a LOT on many other sites I visit.

    This made me think of the Terminator a bit.
    I really don't know.. If the robot won't grab a kitchen knife at night and try to kill me, why not? Oh and does it need specific orders or can I just say "make me breakfast"?

    Haha, I'll do well to remember that one. Btw, in Japan they have smart refrigerators and restrooms.

    Actually we have those but the Japanese are better. Ok, back to the original subject.

    Re: Would you opt in to a kitchen robot?

    I think we're definitely moving in a more robotic direction for the future. whether they're going to be beneficial or if we're on the road to a Robot Revolution, who knows. personally, I would LOVE to have someone else cooking for me, since I seem to create a disaster area every time I try.... if it could also do reminders (like "have you eaten lunch yet today?") that would be cool too. Cause I need those sometimes.

    what would be cool is one of those things like in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy that can sense what you're craving and makes it for you. because sometimes I get hungry but I don't know what I want, and don't have the energy to make anything, so I end up ... not eating. *shameful confession.* I know it's bad.

    so yeah, Robots.... if they take care of you, great. If they try to micromanage or whatever, not cool. If they want to hold an armed rebellion against humankind.... I might betray you all. Robots deserve rights too!!

    I rely on my phone a LOT to remind me to do things right now. So I would probably rely a lot on a kitchen robot too.

    Negative. I barely trust my computer with my browsing history, let alone a robot with my basic needs.

    Re: Would you opt in to a kitchen robot?

    I don't think I'd want to kitchen robot unless it was only for cleaning up. I wouldn't mind a robot that cleaned my bathroom and did my laundry. I also think I don't mind something like a Star Trek style replicator for those days when you get off work and just want to feed your face and not be troubled.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett
