ah fark. the viewing experience of the future -

ahaha that was funny. oh here comes commercials I think I'll go take a shiat while they blab on about crest. *person gets up, goes to bathroom, returns* isn't this that same crest commercial I was just watching?

The tv had paused to make SURE that the commercials are properly viewed before the content returns.

luckily, in the even further future, you can just have your robot with realistic facial features stay in the room and watch the commercials for you while you go do other stuff.

/such is life in America

Our TV has one of these. The only thing it can't do is access some of the crazy uncommon menus while watching netflix or hulu. Beats the hell out of a million button giant remote.

It's hard out here for a straight musical theater guy.

It's hard right here, now!

Er...

But seriously - WHY. WHY WHY WHY. I don't want my eyes unblinkingly stared at by machine intelligence, barraged with infra-red, lasers, or whatever, I don't want to accidentally sneeze during a particularly crucial scene and have the TV erase its BIOS because I gave the secret BIOS destroy face.

Designers are starting to outrun the engineers. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Sure that pickle jar looks great, and you've got one hell of an erection, but the two really don't go well together.

We get it, there's no more huge leaps of tech to dive into. We've just about exhausted realizing the sci-fi that came before and bringing it into reality; all that remains are horrid re-mixes of bad ideas and retarded fetishization. Why not bump it up a notch and have a TV controlled by arguments? Farts? Vitriol? Oh ho! A television that forces you to be submissive and 'rewards' conditioned behavior with following through with the desired command?


Just imagine how much fun the toilets of the future will be. Just flushing your poop away will be too boring. You'll get a hydraulically animated series of stories starring your fecal matter before it boogies down the drain....

There's lots of huge leaps left. The problem is that consumer electronics are basically done. Every version of a tablet, phone, PC or TV now is a point release. What the manufacturers are looking for now are gimmicks to sell a product, something that you think "hey, that's cool" and you'll use twice after you buy it and then realise that you could have bought a cheaper, generic version.

I actually was in the process of searching google for what "gaze" means in gay culture when it finally sunk in.
