Home Automation: Mystery, Mayhem, or Magical?

Home Automation: Mystery, Mayhem, or Magical?

“Help!  Help!  Jane!  Stop this crazy thing!”  -  George Jetson, The Jetsons, Theme Song.

The Jetsons was an American animated TV sitcom produced by Hanna-Barbera originally airing in the 1960s.  The Jetsons were a futuristic family living an innovative utopia of elaborate robotic contraptions and whimsical inventions.  Their home has numerous push-button, Space Age-envisioned amenities which some helped and some did not. George Jetson's workweek is typical of his era:  an hour a day, two days a week.  Daily life is leisurely, assisted by numerous laborsaving devices, which occasionally break down with humorous results.  Despite these conveniences, everyone complains of exhausting hard labor and difficulties living with the remaining inconveniences.  Sound familiar?
