Many of have been in those sticky situations when your wife or girlfriend is trying on different outfits and ask you for your opinion. We hear those question like “do I look fat in this?”, “which of these looks better on me?” or “how do I look?”. We usually freeze or stutter trying to come up with just the right answer to only end up end up just rambling off something that we soon regret saying. There is now an app to help you in these situations.
12-year-old Ethan Duggan created an app called LazyHusband that he introduced at this years SXSW (south by south-west) conference in Austin, TX. The app comes with a number of standard answers that the user can record in their own voice or they can come up with their own message. Then they can play any of these recorded answers anytime that one of these situations arise.
When interviewed at the SXSW conference about how he came up with the idea Ethan explained
“My mom comes home and she has a bunch of dresses, like twenty,” he recalled. “She goes into her room, tries the dresses on, comes back to me, and says ‘How do I look?’ I say she looks great. Then I realized, I have a phone.”
Ethan Duggan isn't satisfied with just the one app though and has a few more in the works called Barguments, LazyKid and LazyMom.
Bargument is an app that you will be able to use at times when you get into one those ridiculous arguments that seems to come up when there is drinking involved. You can then pull out your smartphone and pull up a fake wikipedia page with false facts to settle the argument. “My example is that there are 30,000 seagulls in Africa,” Ethan said.
When you get home from school and go into your room to either play video games or actually do your homework you don't want to stop to answer questions. This is where Ethan Duggan's LazyKid app will come in and you can simply play your pre-recorded answers like “yes, I have done my homework”, “just a minute” and “I love you”.
