Wakeup slides

When I was a kid, I loved going to school but I hated my morning routine: Wake, wash, dress, brush, eat, dash.

I remember wishing I had a fun alternative to the banality of the repetitive drill. That’s when I came up with the idea of a ‘wakeup slide’. The basic idea was that I would wake up, pop into the tube, slide down and go through stations that did the work for me. Each pod station would accomplish a different task – brushing my teeth, washing my face, feeding me breakfast. The slide incline and station speed would be designed so that the whole ordeal would be finished in less than 1 minute. It would go something like this:

Waking up would be so much more fun if we could just hop in a slide and let technology take care of the rest. What do you think, fantasy or future? I’m inclined (har har) to think that a Wakeup Slide is probably more than a few years away…
