I LOVE this- bring on the AI baby! I personally can’t wait to get my bio-mechanical body and say sayonara to this faulty fleshy housing. Realistic robots just look like one step closer to that in my view. As long as we evolve in a positive, compassionate and useful direction, I’m all for it.
And along the same lines, here is another incredible techno-humanoid feat, real-life manga holograms in concert! Strangely enough the “music” actually grew on me, but it does also kind of make me want to kill someone. You can see a whole series of them in the concert on youtube and I highly recommend checking out the back story of how this all came about. Very interesting.
Did you know that we are living in exponential times?
Technology and media are having profound effects on all our lives as their growth continues to explode. These videos do a great job of presenting some of this reality to us. Brought to you by http://didyouknow.tv/
*p.s. Thanks Crystal for reminding me about this! :)
In honor the mega media upgrade my hubby came home with today, here’s a room that’s far more modern than I find comfortable, but features a color combo I love and balances art and technology beautifully.
Oh and btw, our upgrade is from a 32″ Sharp that weighed a thousand frikin’ pounds to a 42″ Panasonic Plasma and MacMini with wireless keyboard and trackpad. We don’t watch television, but we do Netflix on Demand so now we have an HDTV that streams videos (without the $100 NF stream box), replaces our DVD player, and another (super-sized) Mac computer so we aren’t fighting over the laptop. Hell yeah!
