Imagine this scene if you will: you are emptying the dishwasher, putting plates and things into their places, and the wine glass back on the shelf when, just as you’re reaching up to that shelf, the glass drops, falls 4 1/2 ft or so onto a hardwood floor, and shatters into a thousand pieces.
Dammit, you think, dammit. This was one of the last of my beloved spherical Zwiesel crystal ones left after only 30-odd years.
Out come broom and dustpan, and all is captured. There is no hope of putting it back together, of course, but wouldn’t it be great if I could take a photo, run it through an Android app and find out whether I found all parts? No, I have to walk around barefooted to find the remaining pieces, because there is no app for that.
I found a pretty big shard just this Saturday in this manner, but fortunately it got stick in the sole of my slippers. It’s a good thing wearing those once in a while.
