Kevin Kelly's video shown in class brought me to TED.org where I found a video on new technology that somewhat blew my mind. They call it a "6th sense" and I don't even really know how to explain it. Watch this video
Personally, thinking about this technology makes me want to go live in a forest somewhere. I can't believe how reliant people have become on technology. I am incredibly guilty of this myself and can't go more than a few hours without checking facebook or Googleing something but The 6th Sense takes it all to a far new level. When your choices about buying paper towel are made by a technological device and a green light shined on the product, what has this world come to? I see the point that more informed decisions can be made, but for the most part this level of technology just scares me a bit. Where is the realness and the emotion and energy in a world filled with so much technology? That doesn't seem like a world I'd like to live in. But I guess when change happens gradually and we build up a sort of tolerance to how much of our lives really do revolve around the internet and new technologies, it might not seem so shocking at the time it is on market and in use.
