World’s Best Widget
You’ve been granted magical engineering skills, but you can only use them to build one gadget or machine. What do you build?
Well, my answer to this one is not glamorous or novel. It .comes from having reached the point in my life in which I hate having to bend over and stay that way for any length of time.
I would build a machine that can make beds, clean tubs and toilets, mop and sweep floors, take laundry out of the washer and dryer, and locate pans and other things that hide in the bottom shelves of cabinets. It would eliminate any need for me to bend.
I would market it to everyone to has a herniated lumbar disk or two. Anyone with degenerative disk disease or stenosis. It could be on one of those annoying TV ads that sells new gadgets and always says “BUT WAIT!! If you order right now, we’ll send you a second one absolutely FREE!!”
