I recently stumbled upon the following: Coffee Drone Could Predict When You Need Caffeine–and Deliver It.
This delivery system is in new technological terrain. It would not just have a drone, instead of a physical person, delivering your coffee, it would have a smart system connected to you to be in tune with your exact caffeinated needs. Nifty.
Now, I’m a bit of a late-adopter when it comes to technology.
I didn’t get a Kindle account or a read a book on a device until about 3 years ago. I didn’t listen to audible until this year. I like older model cell phones–the kind that still fit into my pocket and have been paid off for years. So, the idea of an app connected to my body monitoring my caffeine routines doesn’t sound like fun. I won’t even wear a FitBit for my steps, heartbeat, or sleep patterns–I don’t want all this information documented or shared with me, my brain is full enough.
Furthermore, I still kinda like people. Kinda.
I still want some human interaction.
Yes, I truly believe we are robbing ourselves, slowly, of the remaining opportunities to practice conversation and basic human decency with strangers. It bothers me. So a drone? Not for me. I either want to order my coffee and speak with the barista, or thank the delivery person.
This is not for me, but maybe it’s for you. What do you think?
Would you want a coffee drone delivery system in your life?
