interactive jumpsuit

A wired jumpsuit designed to carry on conversations with people when you're too tired to.

I want to invent a jumpsuit, including helmet, that enables people to have conversations with the wearer without forcing said wearer to actually think or react to the person talking. Sometimes there'll be people you really don't want to talk to. The jumpsuit will allow these types of annoying people to engage in mock conversations. Pre-programmed responses such as, 'I'm doing fine. How are you?' and 'Mine was great. How was your weekend?' would keep the annoying person entertained while you accomplish more meaningful tasks.

       I'm kind of busy right now. Looks good to me. Ask Research and Development.

       It's already fully baked online. Just one of the many ways that the internet saves you from having a life.

       How about establishing a "Listener" service. Someone else being paid to listen and answer for you through the helmet?
