Better Than Sliced Bread:
A Day Made of Glass

I was sitting in on an eighth grade science class today, where the teacher began with a short video, A Day Made of Glass.  The video takes you through a day in the life of a woman from the near future, starting the moment she wakes up until she settles in for the evening with her family.

The video showcases technology that already is - or soon will be - available to the public, including glass that can change its tint, touchscreen mirrors and countertops, even a stove that responds to a person's touch.

It's a very peaceful video, with no dialogue, and calming music.  The modern white of almost all the furniture is also quite soothing, but I must admit that I'd much rather have a bit of color.  I think it just makes a house feel more like a home.  That's not to say I wouldn't love the technology in my house, though!
