LAST week, I was brainfarting about a few technological enhancement that could be a big help for a lot of us either at work or with our daily lives. And at the end, I said that one person comes to mind after mentioning those - Tony Stark.

We all know who Tony Stark is. Well, that is if you've caught up with the Iron Man movies that came out over the last several years and the Avengers series as well. If not, I'm curious which rock you crawled under in and got left behind. Anyway, Tony is an engineer and he's got the money to continuously experiment.

Moving forward, I mentioned Tony because of the many things he created and made, he created J.A.R.V.I.S or Just A Rather Very Intelligent System. And Jarvis does a lot of things for Tony - make and answer phone calls, monitor his company, hack into systems, run diagnostic on his iron suits, among many others. Heck, Jarvis even keeps Tony's calendar. Who needs a personal assistant when you can have Jarvis?

Also, Jarvis has an extensive "research network." Meaning, he gets info from pretty much everywhere; scours the web -- shallow side and deep side -- to find what's needed. That kind of reach from a single, almost sentient system will provide anyone (or Tony) that know-how to be able to build what he builds. And that thing I mentioned last week about our bodies wirelessly powering our mobile devices? I wouldn't be surprised if that will actually come true in the near future. The near future because I'd like to see that happen in my lifetime.

Kinetic energy from our own bodies being converted into electrical energy then transmitted over to our mobile devices. Seiko makes watches that converts kinetic energy into electrical energy that powers up their watches. Now if someone can just come up with transmitting energy wirelessly.

Is there a Tony Stark out there willing to take on this challenge?
