A few years ago, a friend of mine suggested that I do some research on a new kind of desktop computer, the Stationary Machine Tool (SMT).
A SMT is a type of portable, non-traditional computer that can be mounted on your wall and run programs remotely.
This is a really interesting idea.
It could save you a lot of time.
Instead of writing some boilerplate code for each new program you write, you could write the code for the program on a stationary machine and then have it run on a computer that you have plugged into the wall.
Sounds great, right?
And in the process, you can save yourself tons of time by not having to write code for every new program.
But is this feasible?
Yes, if you can put a SMT on your own wall and plug it into the internet.
And if you have a wall outlet, the SMT will be mounted at the base of the wall, so that when you plug the SMC into the outlet it will not interfere with your power outlet.
The problem is that most people are not going to be able to afford to install the SMTs, and most people do not have the financial resources to pay for the installation of a SMTC.
