A highly recommended TV show

I must admit that I really don’t watch much TV shows. Most likely I can count the shows I’ve seen in past 10 years with the fingers of my hands. But since I’m really interested in all the new technology advancements that are already changing and are going to change our everyday lives one show caught my attention and now I can honestly say that it’s definitely one of the best I’ve seen. It’s called Black Mirror (IMDB link) and so far 4 seasons have been made. It’s described as “An anthology series exploring a twisted, high-tech world where humanity’s greatest innovations and darkest instincts collide.” Each episode contains a separate story about how technology affects our lives and sometimes brings out the darker sides of us. Some episodes are good and some are just sublime! Most of all they are all intriguing so after you’ve watched one it’s guaranteed that you’ll find yourself thinking about how you may have acted and how the real world would look like if it would be as in the show. I must warn you that some of the episodes are really straight on and can even be slightly disturbing but it all adds to the effect. Since today’s technology is advancing so rapidly it’s quite difficult to imagine how our world looks like in 10, 20, 30 years from now but the directors of this show have definitely done a good job and given us a lot to think about. Go and check it out :)!

Edible water bottles and GravityLight

If some new technologies can bring as much bad as good here are 2 that will definitely find a place in our world. The biggest problem with these kind of new things is the cost and therefore availability for bigger audience. If that issue can be solved then there could a lot of good things coming. I especially like the idea of Gravitylight. It might not mean much to people living in the modern world but there are millions of people for who this can literally be a lifesaver.

The future is not far away

I’ve always been fascinated about the new technologies that are slowly or in some cases rather quickly being integrated into our lives. I believe that there are always 2 sides to each story. From one side it’s great that there are a lot of new technologies that help us every day and offer us experiences that we couldn’t even dream about 10 years ago. But from other perspective it’s quite terrifying to think about what will happen with that true real human experience and human connection in the midst of this technology age. We’ll just have to wait and see how it goes. I really hope that we manage to combine the best parts from both of the worlds.

Here’s one example of technology that you can already buy. And actually these kind of things don’t even have to be outside of your body anymore…
