Innovative Thinking – Absurdity Continues – Blog 113

The Absurdity Continues


Here are a few absurd questions I asked myself over the year and returned some astounding surprises.

  • 1978: What if you could get a computer to speak to you?
  • 1985: What if you spoke to a computer and it did what you asked?
  • 1986: What if you could control a mouse just by moving your head?
  • 1986: What if you could sipped on a straw and could turn on a light?
  • 1987: What if you could click buttons and have the computer speak for you?
  • 1987: What if you could puff on a straw and control a hospital bed?
  • 1999: What if you could send virtual toys over the internet?

Don’t be afraid to ask bizarre, unexpected questions, you just might be surprised at the answers!
