It would be interesting to make structures around your house that were linked to the equinoxes and such.  Someone could probably make good money installing sculptures that let light fall on your favorite item once a year, or selling the same, and provide a cell-phone app for setting it up.

You could even sell a robot that moves around depending on the season to always point toward the sun or something, for people who have everything,

I was looking at some autonomous bots, oddly enough.

What do they do, autonomously?  Patrol the forest?

Well, it can patrol your house. It has night vision cameras, microphones, and other sensors. And it uses Google TensorFlow for ML stuff, so you can train it, as well.

Sounds like a fun gizmo.  I have so many questions.  Does it burn the TensorFlow ML into hardware chips?  What does it do when there is a new wall where there wasn't one before.  How does it move?  What actuators can it have?  Is it always hooked into the Internet?  How do you communicate with it.  Is it a sexbot?  Will it kill you in your sleep?

Most of those questions can be answered on the Kickstarter page. Most of those questions.

They also sell a fighting robot.

That clears up a lot of questions.

I like the wheels, and saw it moving diagonally in the video.

You'd probably need one for each floor.

Its fists and maybe legs, too.

Hmmm, what will be on next.  Not gonna look.  OK, Ark of the Covenant.  oh, Nazis, too.
 
2021-04-13 10:06:08 PM  
There is some stringed instrument playing in the background.  Doesn't really sound like a guitar, and it seems like it sounds bowed in some cases.

Like a tuned-down banjo.

Is it an Oud?

They could sell tickets!   That Ethiopian religious site got attacked recently, wiping out 750 people. I wonder if they got the Ark.

No. I have enough instruments I don't play frequently.

The Ethiopian priests like their yellow shawls and and adornments.

The host just said he could storm the church and take the Ark.  I wonder if he gave someone ideas.

Are we watching SyEnse, or something else?

2021-04-13 11:00:13 PM  
Someone couls send one of your Scout robots into the Ethiopian church at night, and program it to go in to see if there really is an Ark.  They don't seem to have much in the way of doors, more like sheets on the Ethi-openings.

I think it is the Catholic channel.

You wouldn't be asking if you were not in a place where you could actually see the SciChan.

I bet the Ark of the Covenants is hidden in the Vatican warehouses.

No. Still in Flagstaff. I ordered Doordash for dinner tonight. It was a good deviation from nursing care food. Tonight was "Tamale Pie."

Ugh! I don't even want to know what that is. It sounds like a white woman invented it. Lunch was a horrific event. Rice and Chicken with big-ol' pieces of cooked zucchini in butter. They used all of the spices in the spice rack for the chicken. Rosemary, sage, you name it. It tasted like a forest came in my mouth. It was disgusting. And no salt. They think that by over-seasoning with the dry herbs in the spice rack, that they can get away without salting anything. I'm so sick of this place.

Sorry.

Oh, from Doordash, I got Fratelli's pizza. I ordered a small 10" pie, but something like 14 inches came in the box, so I'm not complaining. I'll share it with my nurse, I think.

That sounds cruel and unusual.

The Vatican has an observatory in Arizona?  That's what they said on the show, and they conjectured that the Vatican is looking for aliens.
