A day with Tablet–Contest Post


Somi did not like to wake up early , but sadly she had a meeting at 6:00 AM in the morning . At sharp 5:30 AM her Tablet , working as an alarm clock in stand mode , blazed the most annoying songs , songs that she rarely listened to or simply skipped.

Wretched Tab , Somi said. It knows which songs I hate and hence plays it to wake me up.

She opened her eyes barely , her coffee was ready, the tab had started the coffee maker .The tab was also showing how well she slept,calculating it based on how much she rolled over .

She got up, took a bath and had her breakfast. She took a pic of breakfast with her Tab and it immediately recognised the food and quantity and added the calories she was to consume.

Her call started at sharp 6:00 over video conferencing. After a short call, she was all set to go to office.

She put everything in her bag, her keys, the tab,wallet.

As she started driving towards her office ,she realised she has forgotten her Tab charger, but it was ok. The tab still had 80% charge, even during night it went into power saving mode and only the clock worked , thus saving it from dying out.

The tab was automatically playing a soothing music track, as if telling Somi to calm down. The tab knew she was feeling irritated, because she was driving faster than usual and also because the tab had biosensors on it’s sides ,and whenever Somi touched it, it recorded her essential bio signals such as heart rate.

The tab also knew that she had slept late and did not have complete REM sleep.It advised her to slow down , while telling her that her next meeting was in the afternoon, lots of time it said.

She reached office, parked her car and went inside. As soon as it connected to the office network the tab started a new session, completely different from her home sessions. Everything as per the company. She connected her keyboard and went on with her daily job of copy editing articles. She loved her job , but her lack of sleep was taking  a toll on her.

She went by her day as usual and the tab gave her suggestions in between to keep her cheerful , tried to play music as per her mood , suggested her to take breaks, told her that she is not having water and also gave her small exercises to do in between.

As the day progressed the tab had a surprising message ..

“Hey Somi, you seem to be a little down today, why not have a piece of chocolate cake? Don’t worry, you have not taken enough calories today, we will adjust .Won’t  mess up your eating plans”

This completely made her day :).One chocolate cake and 2 more hours of work later , Somi headed back to work.

Tab guided her to her car in the parking lot, it had picked up the GPS location and knew exactly where she parked. It also suggested she walk instead of taking a lift, she had not taken enough steps today(it counted) , and remember that chocolate cake?

Home sweet home, she checked her calendar , marked which meetings were essential and let het tab take over.

Last Tab Message of the day:

Somi, you have a meeting at 10:00 tomorrow, so we can sleep a little more :). Also remember you did not sleep well yesterday, so go to bed early . And I promise to not wake you up with the songs you don’t like. And hey, my battery is a little low, 30% only. Do plug me in, let me have my calories also :). Good night, see you tomorrow morning 🙂

      Hahah, Thanks Desi Traveler, My Idea was that a Tab should be more personal. My belief is that soon, technology would merge with our daily life so much that we won’t even notice it. It has to become personal and humane.
