Motorola has patented a phone that, if it ever makes it into stores, will make it much easier to live in feng shui bliss. The phone is loaded full of sensors to establish if a room is just right, or if it needs karmic help. The camera will be used to determine special relationships and to determine color saturations. The GPS receiver will tell you if you are too close to undesirable locales. The microphone will gauge ambient noise levels to make sure nothing will interrupt your bliss. Even the radio gets in on the act, measuring the strength of radio transmissions from the nearest towers.
Now, I donâ’t know much about feng shui, but I do know that direction is important. That’s why Motorola has added a ‘three dimensional Hall-effect sensor’ to deliver digital compass settings. Apparently all you have to do is snap a couple of pictures and wait for the fancy software on the phone to tell you how to make your world a better place.
No word on when, or even if this bizarre concept will materialize. Until then, you’re on your own.
