Re: Workforce

I bet they would be annoying and try and vacuum under your EZ Boy foot rest while you were watching though.

No, they wouldn't. I don't own one of those things. And I also wouldn't let them vacuum when I was watching TV (or YouTube or Netflix).

Besides, if I had the tech available to have Zimmerman holograms to do my housework, wouldn't silent vacuum cleaners have been invented by that time?

Re: Workforce

But how would you amusingly freak out cats if the vacuums were silent?

You could have all the EMHs wait near the litter box, and when the cat goes in, turn their sound on again.

I'm thinking "Pranks with EMH Slaves" is going to be huge..

I wouldn't do that. I love my cats.

Nope. The EMHs can damn well clean the litter box and take out the garbage (would have to put some kind of restriction on the distance they could go with their mobile emitters so they don't escape, of course).

My cats love me more because I save them from the vacuum.

Gotta love the ideas popping up for proper use of virtual slaves.

That's easy. If they're only confined to your house and property, just have standard emitters. If they're using mobile emitters (for shopping errands, etc.), then your vehicle has a transmitter that keeps them from going beyond X meters.

Edit: And if they do try to escape, the vehicle transmitter automatically programs them to sing "Freebird" at the top of their lungs until they're arrested.

Re: Workforce

How many do you think one person would need? Would a well off family have one for each person? Would it be like that rich kid who got the Ipod when they were 8, having your own EMH slave?

Then you also have to worry about the Dads having their own Emergency Medical Love Slave.

A suspicious wife can do a quick search for hidden sub routines while the husband is out playing parrisis squares.

I live in an apartment and the garbage bin is downstairs in the back parking lot. I suppose I could have one just to take out the garbage and that one's mobile emitter could have a farther range than the one that stays strictly indoors.

I'd need two, since there are times when two would be needed for things like hauling furniture or doing errands in different places at the same time.

Re: Workforce

I wonder if you could have parties with them. And only them.

Re: Workforce

If they were programmed for it, why not?
