Have you ever heard the old saying; "Some people are so lazy ...
that they will put out a tremendous effort just to have
a machine or device that will do something ...
automatically for them"?

Much of our technology was produced,
as a result of this type of mind set.

Curiosity, Fun, Laziness and Necessity are the main motivators of Invention.
