Five children playing

I see a future so great. It started with a holiday, a children’s holiday, they are visiting me. I live in a town, high in the mountains. You can only get here by trekking for many days or by catching a train.

Today is there last day here, the day started with us walking deeper into the mountains, to Kirtipur one day I will tell you more about ‘my Kirtipur’ a place sandwiched in a narrow gorge where the houses are piled one one on top of another. A place where you need to be as fit as a monkey to get around.

But back to my story, we had reached the highest level in Kurtipur and the children were playing with their toys or so I thought. Five very different robotic like items wandered around the room, as I chatted with my other visitors.

The children playing so I believed. “It’s play back time grandfather”. In turn each robot told me what it had seen and heard, even down to using a camera to access the pages of my open book. I tell you fascinating is the world to come.

      1. I’m right there with you. I can barely figure out how to use the ‘modern’ TV remote. And while I do have a cell phone – it ain’t smart and I don’t text either. 🙂
