Choicelessness

Digression

Posted in technology, work by johnsnavely on August 6, 2008

Unbeknownst (is that even a word?) to me, another chunk of the videos my group has done have been released to the public. (Luckily, they’re published to YouTube where the flaming can go on indefinitely. Yay!) They’re pretty old and they’re beginning to show their age.  But I thought you might like to have a look…especially since right now, we’re working on a brand new one!

Here they are (the Health Care vid I showed a couple months ago is included):

    Hey, you can see the videos but for some reason it also opens a new tab with an error.

    Yes, “unbeknownst” is a word. Pretty archaic for futuristic technology but it adds a certain classy note.

    So this is the future. How far are we talking here?

    K, I think I fixed the pop up problem…

    Rox! So glad to see you on the interwebs! I don’t think the videos are an exact indication of what’s to come. More like a vision of how it should be. However, a lot of these technologies are available right now. For example, Surface (a multitouch table that Microsoft has developed) can recognize RFID tagged objects just like the bottles of medicine on the side table in the Health Care video. But a lot of things have to change before multitouch, object recognition furniture gets installed in hospitals.

    There was a great article in the New York Times recently about how Esquire Magazine is going to publish the first magazine with a e-ink cover in September. The technology is already here, but the processes to use it aren’t.

    I like the car and the healthcare video the best. How about some voice input, in addition to typing and stylus.

    Let us use some classical Baroque, instead of the monotonous new-age muzack. (Some Baroques are jsut monotonous, but with variations)
