Hey, it's progress, innovation, growth. Nothing wrong with inventing and marketing new things and creating jobs.
This probably is
more sanitary. And there are these new-fangled faucets that turn themselves on too. And even paper towels dispensers you don't
have to touch.
In today's science fiction there are all sorts of things that seem far fetched but that may one day be a reality. Things like showers that you step in
and they automatically turn on, soap you up, and then dry you off too (that one may be real now?)
Think about all the things from past science fiction that have come true too: Videophones, space shuttles, microwaves, test tube babies, moving
sidewalks, touch screens, wrist radios/phones, iPads, laser weapons, the internet. The list goes on and on.
Someone probably laughed at, or found ridiculous at one point, a lot of the common, everyday things we take for granted in our homes today too.
