Smartphones are evolving at a phenomenal rate. Ten years ago they had no internet capability, much less GPS navigation, arcade-quality video games, or unlimited data transference. Now, the average smartphones is as good as a little robot. All that’s missing are the arms, legs and head.

However, before it gets to full-fledged robot housekeeper status, there are some other advances they will need to take place. My suggestion is they start with these primitive, yet useful features. And somehow, I think you’ll agree.

No matter where you reside, at some point during the year it gets cold. When that happens, you undoubtedly find some type of gloves to wear. The problem, however, is that you’re addicted to your smartphone and find yourself pulling off your gloves with your teeth every time it rings or you have a bright idea for a Tweet or Facebook update. If smartphones were equipped with some sort of internal heating system, your problem would be solved. People carry their smartphones around 75% of the time anyway. For illustrative purpose, imagine Siri saying, “You have hands like a Zombie. Let me help you out a bit.” With this invention, the market would obliterate any company that makes gloves. I hope I didn’t just plant a seed that will eventually cost some folks their livelihoods.
