Science-Fiction-Filme sind überall und wissen es nicht mal. Oder?
Über die Erfahrung Parasite zu schauen mit der Erwartung, dass es SciFi-Horror ist.

// Sorry, muss ich hier einfach die Antwort fast komplett zitieren, in voller, wahnsinniger Pracht:

Q: Is there a way to create a shortcut to remote start my truck? […]

A: I do this by putting a google home mini next to my echo.
I then created a Shortcut so that when I say “Start my car” it makes a web request to my HA (hass.io) instance which then triggers an automation that makes a TTS request to my google home mini that makes it say “Alexa, start my car”, then waits 7 seconds, then says “Alexa, <insert your pin code here>.”
It startles my wife when she’s home and Google and Alexa start talking to each other out of nowhere but other than that it works great. And the idea of getting Google to talk to Alexa has opened up a host of other automations (really just controlling lights with Siri that only work with Alexa).

Anschnallen bitte: „If 120 experts in 12 different fields were sent back 10,000 years, could they recreate the 21 century in 100 years?“
Wow, many number, such science!

„Ten experts (CEOs, professors) of each of the fields of math,
[…]
use solar eclipses and parlor tricks to be accepted as leaders of a German tribe unconditionally
[…]
Let’s assume conflict between the professors and tribe members is not a factor
[…]
The experts are ageless but

How far into the future can they push the tribe, or whoever else they conquer, in [100 years]?“

Die akzeptierte Antwort hingegen:
„Not a full 21st century world, but we can get close to it in some ways.“ [Es folgt ein detaillierter, Civilization-artiger, 26-Schritte-Schlachtplan.]

BONUS-UPDATE: kurz später eingetrudelt: Building a phone charger 500 years ago. Highlight aus den Kommentaren: „The biggest problem I think is how to get (more or less exactly) 5V DC. Maybe with use of some fruits or potatoe (I remember you can get electricity with them)“

Und Menschen. Alle.
Die Headline im Link (jaja meine auch) ist ein bisschen clicky-baity, es geht eher um die Zusammenarbeit von Menschen und Robotern. Und wahrscheinlich weil die Quelle das WSJ ist, zum Abschluss ein sneaky kapitalistischer Schlag in den menschlichen Magen:

Other requirements for our remote-controlled future include „a tolerance for working for a lower wage, since remote operation could allow companies to outsource driving, construction and service jobs to call centers in cheaper labor markets,“ the report adds.

An antiprocrastination hyperproductivity app:

[Focusmate is] very simple. It pairs you with a random person via webcam and you work together for 50 minutes at a time. […] I click start and it brings up a typical webcam, video-chat-kind-of window, and the other person’s there sitting at a desk and I’ll say “Hi, what are you working on?” They’ll say, “Oh I’m grading something because I’m a teacher.” And I’ll say, “Okay great. I’m doing some editing because I’m a book collaborator,” and that’s it. […] Nobody really watches each other. […] But something about that psychological awareness that someone else is also working at the same time keeps me pinned to my work and in a state of flow like nothing else I’ve ever done.
