- Stop using the GPS (Global Positioning System) unit in their automobile because it crucially relies on the constancy of satellite-borne atomic clocks, which constancy is a consequence of quantum mechanics. GPS technology also relies crucially on Einstein’s relativity.
- Toss their smartphone because the engineering behind its components relies crucially on quantum mechanics.
- For that matter, stop using any item with built-in semiconductor devices, since they are all similarly designed based on quantum mechanical principles. Nowadays, this means a vast number of manufactured items, including every new automobile now on the market.
