Like… you no longer need to walk across the room to make a phone call.

Or to check your email.

Or to turn on the television.

So why is that, to turn on a light, you still have to get up to walk across the room…

…and then go up a long flight of stairs…

Oh, and if you ever leave your house, this will happen.

It’s enough to make you just want to sit in the dark.
