A day in the near future — how new designs will change our lives (New York Times video)

By Peninsula Daily News staff

SOON, RESPONSIVE ROBOTS and products will help us wake up, perform at work and make us dinner.

Carla Diana and the artist Katie Turner give us a glimpse of a typical day in our near future in this New York Times video.

But . . . always a but, right? . . . is what's shown good or bad?

Three of the comments at the YouTube site:

Carilyn Zhang: "Then people will not know how to use their brain to do some basic activities in life. Terrible. I don't want to live a life like this."

HCHSGuy: "These are all ways in which we will become more stupid - we are all perfectly capable of remembering where to bike, turning on our stereo system, and we also love cooking!"

Jackieathiful: "I read read the comments. A lot are negative. I think it is very creative. There are days that I wish I had some help. Come on, it is funny. Lighten up. You sound like your angry at a video."
