Handing over purchasing power to a six-year-old is probably unwise. If I could talk to a magical voice in my house that would send me anything I asked for, I would have abused that power as a child. Heck, I probably still would. But that's exactly what Amazon's Alexa does, at least by default.
Giving somebody a plant is special; you're essentially telling them that you think they're responsible enough to support another living thing. Not only that, plants have been proven to boost your mood and filter your air. Some people give things, but you give experiences. Like the experience of growing a little bean sprout
Human drivers are imperfect pilots, placed in command of a couple thousand pounds of fast-moving metal. We're just not equipped for the task: The eyes that evolved pointing forward (to better navigate our ancestral home in the trees) mean a smaller field of vision. Even with well-positioned mirrors, a human driving a car in three-dimensional space is bound to have blindspots. But what if the car itself didn't? What if cars could sense where they were, and then communicate that information to other cars? Suddenly, a dense road of imperfectly piloted vehicles would become a smart, safe network, with the cars themselves constantly pinpointing one another in space and time.

CaliberMind, a two-year-old company founded by two former Israeli intelligence officers and an NSA data scientist, exists to help businesses seal deals with other businesses better.
Long before we have fully autonomous cars – ones in which we can kick back and catch up on Westworld as our faithful robot delivers us safely to work – we'll live in a world of shared responsibility. Tesla Autopilot and other upcoming advanced semi-autonomous systems require the driver to stay alert, should a situation arise in which humans need to step in and take the wheel.
