After working in some illustrations of vampires, an idea came to me. Thanks to technology, how would a vampire live today?
Vampires have several issues, such as not being able to go out in daylight or not being able to watch themselves in mirrors. But thank to technology, their horrorous life could be easier.
Mirrors have always been a problem to vampires, not anymore. Thanks to a touchscreen,a webcam and an raspberry pi, any vampire would be able to see himself/herself. The easy way would be to connect simply the camera to the front in order to show what’s in front of it. Always ready, vampire!
Vampires can’t bare sunlight, some developers share this too. But if you are a vampire developer, is even worse. What can you do? You can ask for food and supplies online, earn a degree online and basically work online. Now there’s no way you can escape from your responsibilities if you are a vampire.
Vampires are immortal, this is a horrible thing regarding to documents and bureaucracy. But fear no more, because internet gives you a gold chance to be anonymous online. You can create a privacy wall surrounding your-digital-self and use digital currency, such as bitcoins.
Need blood? this is tedious, going to chase humans and stuff. No problem because there are already blood substitute, synthetic options. You can go all vegan-vampy.
Sorry about the garlic, tho.
Afraid of vampire hunters chasing you in your room? You can build an arduino detector in your room, based on moving sensors, that blocks your coffin. You can even install a screen inside the coffin to unlock it in case of emergency.
Well this is pretty much it. Get to work, vampire, never is late to join tech!
