This is great — now, if you don’t have any friends, at least you can get SMS messages from your lightbulbs. Fujitsu is responsible for this technology that allows your bulbs to send you a text message when they burn out, so you’ll know you need to buy a new one. Sweet. We need to get this enabled around the house stat, so that our toilet paper can tell us when it’s out, the cat food can text us when it’s low, and so’s the fridge can alert us when our ungrateful friends have drunk the last beer.
When has technology gone to far? I think this is PROBABLY crossing the line. haha
Yea, that crosses it, at least a bit. Imagine if u had an office building were 2-10 lightbulbs burn out each day? heck in the Pentagon aprox 10,000 lightbulbs burn out each day. Can u imagine how annoying that would be to get a text for each one that burns out?
