I try not to think about it too hard, because every time I do, I'm blown away that Raspberry Pi is a thing. A very, very, very long time ago, a friend installed a PC tower in his Oldsmobile Cutlass so he could play MP3s.
A TOWER. TO PLAY MP3s.
Our brains would have exploded if you told us what could be done with a $5 computer.
A short story about fall detection in the new Apple Watch: Over a year ago, my mother -in-law suffered a fall and lost part of her memory. We don’t know how she fell or what she did over the 3 days that she was alone, just that her back was covered in bruises and she had a fractured skull. She’s recovered, but lost much of her sense of smell and taste. It could have been much, much worse. Fall detection could have ensured that she got immediate help. This feature will save lives.
