Does efficiency and utility require that things become automatic?
I don’t think so.
Take for example . . .
- Water temperature and flow can be automatic. If you are unsuccessful searching for the hot and cold water controls, try sticking one or both hands under the faucet.
- Soap dispenser is motion-activated. Yet the dispenser cannot refill itself.
- Paper towels are dispensed in a motion-activated sequence. Sometimes it sees your hand, other times it ignores you.
- A room fragrance is sprayed automatically. You have no choice whether you find the scent appealing or not.
- The plumbing flushes automatically when you get up or walk away.
- Replacement toilet paper rolls fall down into place. Wiping is not automatic.
- The door opening in and going out can be operated automatically. Ironically, the door nominally swings very slow.
The bottom-line remains the same: It still takes the same amount of time to take a poop and wash up.
