Solving The Servant Problem


The worlds of science-fiction abound with wonders. Yet modern technology progress so rapidly that what may be today’s wild dream may be next year’s kitchen appliance.

One task this domesticated automaton will not have to contend with will be scouring the oven because today the newest ranges can be programmed to reduce their own baked on grime to easily disposed of ashes.
