Good night lamp

by Volker Weber

That's a great idea. And I will build it with WeMo. As soon as I have more switches.

What a strange idea. Looks like in the future verbal communication between couples are a waste of time. Maybe I'm too old fashioned for this.

I don't get it either. Don't we have other communications devices that can convey more information than "on/off"?

Maybe this is to be seen along the lines of S01E09 of The Big Bang Theory where the guys have set up their lights and stereo to be controlled via the internet. When Penny asks "why", the obvious answer is "Because we can".

No, really: Why? Trying to save phone charges by using morse code with this thing?

Gegenfrage: wozu dient der "Available" Status bei Instant Messaging?

Genau dazu! Da brauche ich doch nicht noch eine Lampe. Nimmst Du die dann auch mit, wenn Du unterwegs bist?

Gut, wenn da eine Lampe an- oder ausgeht, dann fällt das natürlich deutlicher auf, als ein nicht-mehr-grüner Knubbel in einer Smartphone-App.

Vielleicht ist DAS ja das Feature.

Du hast es. Das Ding zeigt Präsenz an. Und zwar ohne, dass Du irgendwas machen musst.

Schöne neue Welt? Shiny (sic!) new world? Nee Danke. Oder ich bin mit 57 "schon zu alt" für so'n SchnickSchnack ...

Ich habe schon 28-jährige gesehen, die zu alt sind.

Ich finde die Idee wirklich gut. Wie genau würdest du so etwas mit WeMo bauen?

Orly?

I don't see the point in this.

But that doesn't matter. Let the market decide..

Klasse Idee. Stand irgendwo, dass die Goodnightlamp etwas anderes ersetzen muss? Ist doch eine wirklich nette zusätzliche Erinnerung.

Alper, mit Sensor und Schalter kann ich das abbilden. Wenn jemand da ist, Licht an. Da Sensor und Schalter nicht am selben Ort sein müssen, geht das in beliebiger Konfiguration. Und die Lampe kannst Du auch an ganz andere Bedingungen knüpfen, siehe IFTTT.com.
