What do you think about technology today?

I was thinking about this question, is it just a tool or is it a lifestyle? I think it started as a tool to make peoples’ lives better, but now it’s become like a life partner – a thing you can't live without. 

 

If you could invent any piece of technology, what would it be?

I want Google translate inserted into my head.

 

What is the development that you look forward to the most?

An automatic hair washing and drying machine.

 

In this time of rapid change, is there something old school you would like to see more of?

I’d like to see people date in a more old school way, not just Tinder - go out - drink - go home - have sex - become a couple or fuck buddies.
