Works every time...
Surely you should be aware that modern software development practices preclude testing before releasing as 'Early Access', then fixing forwards as soon as issues are detected in the Production environment.
* I would add a Joke icon, but I'm no longer certain that this counts as humo(u)r, sarcasm, wit, or reality these days.
I'd be impressed if instead of it being a pick & drop unit on the end of a mobile conveyor if it could remove boxes by the palletful, read the labels on them and then place them in the correct place within warehouse/storage - then it'd be a useful/sensible solution.
All I see here is something that looks less efficient than the human it professes to replace.
ROTM? I don't think so - Sarah Connor is safe for a while longer.
You probably should, since what happens if your home burns down? The way you've described it at the moment, it sounds as though all your backups are still stored in one physical location. Remember the 3-2-1 rule:
3 copies of your data
2 different media
1 copy stored off-site.
My iPhone 7+ has been doing this rapid battery draining malarkey on and off now for months, so it's definitely not something to do with the latest iOS14 update.
It's intermittent so hard to pin down. I've had it drop from 70%+ charge to 3% in a matter of 15 minutes or so (with the phone not being used) ... then managed to have it continue to function on that last 3% charge for two or more hours.
So it leads me to wonder if it's actually draining the battery, or if there's some glitch that's causing the phone to misreport the actual charge level instead?
C&VG had a covermount flexidisc for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum back in the day, and Personal Computer Games Issue 3 also had one containing all the program listings from the mag.
I seem to recall there were a few other of the popular mags at the time also carried flexidisc covermounts
Have to be careful with that though. In my yoof I worked in a small TV/Computer repair shop, and we used to regularly do that with kit on display. Until the one day the manager did it and hadn't properly ensured there were no stray strands of copper floating about.
Cue instant flashover and fusing of all the electrics in the storefront (and a very loud bang and shocked manager)
I'll admit, I don't do early access games. I prefer to wait and get my sweaty palms on the finished product. That said though, this one is on my wishlist already.

I recently moved to StablePoint from my old TSOHost account.
It's set up by the guys that originally built up VidaHost before it got bought out by GoDaddy/TSOHost.
Main reason I moved from TSO was because of mails to/from O365 accounts going silently missing. So far, not had any issues with StablePoint - it's all CPanel based hosting and all the infra is built up in AWS I understand.
I see words. Lots of words. However, I don't seem to be able to make head or tails of their meaning in this particular arrangement.
Which speaks volumes about my knowledge and understanding of Quantum Physics. (Bistable cats in sealed boxes and spherical sheep in vacuums* are about as far as I go)
Have a beer on me Mr. Kinsler.
* Of course, I'm not implying that these are very small sheep, or particularly large vacuums. Or any particular model of vacuum either, but clearly your average domestic Dyson isn't going to be cutting it here...
Hopefully, we're not too many years away from the glass batteries being developed by Hydro Quebec and John Goodenough.
Then, devices similar to this might have legs: Solar and electromagnetic power for the mainstay of operations and a rechargable, safe, biodegradable glass battery to give constant power in those instances where the draw is too great.
