If everybody had one of these things on their wrist instead of relying on air conditioning or heaters all the time, the potential energy savings could be massive.
Perhaps (no, surely) even more important than any sort of ecological savings and the like is the trillions of hours (2,000,000,000,000 divided by 24 divided by 365.25 gives us 228154232.26 hours of total insanity, which when divided by the assumed amount of human beings that have ever lived (107,602,707,791, http://www.prb.org/Publications/Articles/2002/HowManyPeopleHaveEverLivedonEarth.aspx
), you get 0.0021 hours, or 7.633 seconds per person that has ever lived. Seeing as how I have wasted hours of time on this, I'd say this is likely going to be fairly accurate) of saves insanity on fighting over what temp. to keep the home, office, etc. Keep it at a medium value, and instead of both sides suffering then, just have each side cool/heat themselves up with an attachable heating/cooling device.
Cyborgism is glorious.
