Hi,Something useful from 'AI'.
Zippers: patented in 1851, gaining wide adoption since the 20s, and still letting us down to this day. In this age of flying cars, can technology help us? Can we somehow get an alert, beyond an amused coworker, when your flyer is open and shouldn’t be?
It's also interesting how they fail sometimes. They can outright break, but also a piece of fabric can get stuck in there.
This might be piled in with the way things change as the complexity grows. Zippers are much more complex than buttons. This means their modes of failure will be more wide and unforeseeable than with the simpler technology.
We are seeing this with the 'new' 737max's too. More complicated, more modes of failure where some are just totally unforeseeable.
