I have had – somewhere between several dozen & several hundred story ideas bouncing around in my cranium for, oh, about 2 or 3 months to a year now.
Anyway – the Syfy Channel ( I still LOATHE the name ” Syfy “, but that’s another story ) has shown the movie ” Warm Bodies ” about 10 times. A movie about a ” zombie apocalypse ” with a happy ending & at least 1 happy couple – what’s not to like ?
Further anyway – What happens AFTER the Corpses come all the way back to life ? They’re reintegrating back into society as people, do they have to try to regain their human rights as well ? I’m reminded of the BBC series ” In The Flesh “. That’s what ” R ” & the former Corpses would have to deal with in my seed of a story idea.
With your indulgence, I will expand upon said story idea ( & maybe even come up with a title ! ) here.
I’m going out on a limb here & assuming that wearable keyboards & whatever peripherals are developed later can survive a sudden shower, being pushed into a pool ( how many of us have had smart – phone damage due to a cell phone plopping into a sink ? ) a spill from a bike, chopper, skateboard, etc. ?
Doubts re. : durability aside, this does sound interesting. A novel by Larry Niven once mentioned shirts with LCD displays in the sleeves, so maybe it’s not so far – fetched.
” May you ( we ! ) live in interesting times ” is a phrase I may adopt as a tagline !
Researchers have developed wearable keyboards made of electronics knitted together like fabric that could lead to a new kind of human-machine interface.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm……. This is CRAZY ( In a GOOD way 🙂 ) !!
If they can make robots like this as toys, how soon will it be till AFFORDABLE custom – made domestic & other personal types of robots can be produced & made available to anyone with $ 500 – $ 1,500 that they can comfortably part with sans / going into near – bankruptcy ?
Maybe even robots that can help manage environmental concerns ?
If even a FRACTION of the material I’ve been reading has any weight, our world only has to hang in there just a tad bit longer ( 15 – 20 years ? ).

Here I enthuse again about 3 – D ” Printing ” –
As long as humans can supply the right materials, these devices are going to be able to turn out just about anything.
& if a 3 – D ” Printing ” facility can be located in outer space ( Near Earth Orbit orbit or between Earth & the Moon ), the less the chance of it becoming a source of toxic waste like facilities on Earth have a tendency to become.
For the time being, it’s science fiction, but sometimes fiction can become fact. Big Business can actually help the average guy, no matter where they live.
Something ( else ) to think about when you look up at a full Moon rising in a night sky, or Hell, even in the daytime. PROGRESSIVES !
