A lot of science fiction writers had theories about the future but sadly most of those things aren’t happening anytime soon, but at least we have FaceTime technology.
We may not have flying cars, teleportation, or meals in pill form, but we sure don’t have to stand and wait for water to boil like a bunch of peasants.
One visionary figured out how to use technology to save us from this.
Twitter user, Justin Hill, posted a hack for the tedious act of watching water boil while making pasta.
Justin said he got the idea when he wanted to watch television and not waste time in the kitchen waiting for water to boil. He decided to FaceTime his wife’s phone which could focus on the water while he focused on TV.
Now that is what I call multitasking. You have to admit the idea is a bit ingenious if you have an extra phone lying around. Or, ya know, don’t want to stand for three or four minutes.
We may never get flying cars but at least Justin Hill is living in the year 3017 with this boiling water hack.
