What Your Electronic
Future Looks Like
John Paul Owles
Are you ready for the new electronics? The Owl Network was at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The above video (full screen preferred) demonstrates a small taste of what the future holds for you. Here are some tips:
Prepare your ears.
If your ears have already been brutalized by loud music and headphones in your younger years, then we have the answer for you. For the few audio nerves you have left, you will now have the bass that will rock your whole body. Ànd forget about not having that feeling at home. We have got you covered. Your floors will vibrate at such an intensity that you thought was reserved for a construction site next to your house or apartment. Lay down on the floor, and the music will give you a massage without going out.
Stock up the refrigerator.
You won’t believe the TV you are about to buy. Yes, you will want the new 4K, ultra high definition, curve, super duper television. You will work even harder to get the newest, greatest inventions. If you missed HD, which premiered at CES years ago, don’t feel bad. The newest, in fact, will cause you not to want to leave your house. Virtual reality is more colorful than reality. Colors are just so much more vibrant. Your new reality will become a virtual reality.
You will need a new car.
Yes, the old one, even your new one, is obsolete, so old school. Get with it. First of all, your car will shake with the new sound systems. Yes, that bass is here too. Yes the solution to all your problems is at hand. Your car will be outfitted just like your home. Sound. Video. And since you won’t be paying attention to driving...don’t worry...we got you covered. Alarms will awake you just before you run over your neighbor. Soon, you car will drive itself. And since you are now so cool (the TV ads will confirm this), tuned in (headphones in place)—a person like you can’t be bothered with trivial things like parking. After all, you've got your style going on. Parking is boring. Keep your groove going and tell your car to park itself. After all, you have so many cool things going on.
Yes, my friend, Technology is going to provide everything for your new life…your virtual life…and thank God, personal interaction will be kept to a minimum. Maybe a text here...tweet...or...show your real your commitment with an email. As a last resort, if not too busy, maybe a phone call for that special someone.
Welcome to your new world.
P.S. Excuse me. Nick Cannon just came in. Maybe I will be discovered.
