Technology, the REAL final frontier. Today, instead of focusing on a movie that I went and saw (because we fell off the bandwagon this week and didn’t see one on Tuesday as we usually do) I want to talk about tech and the quickly moving world that it has given us. And how jaded we’ve become because of it.
When I look at some of the old school games that I’ve been playing lately I can’t help but think about how far the game industry has come. Back in the day, when I earned a cinematic cutscene I was so proud of myself! The art in a cut scene would be so much more beautiful in the cutscene than anything we would see in the game, and we worked hard for those cinematics.
Today, those scenes are in High Definition, sporting 1080p LCD craziness (terms that don’t really even mean anything to me.) When I walk through the tech section at the local store, it blows my mind how cheap an HD TV has become. We don’t even flinch at the difference in quality anymore, we just know that we want it, and we want it now.
My microwave has an LCD screen. This blows my mind. I wonder where it will take us? Are there repercussions to the speed in which tech moves? Will we start having trouble keeping ourselves employed because of how quickly we have to relearn? As video games advance will we have problems adapting?
I know I already have issues with FPS’s because I get motion sickness. As we move toward 3D graphics, will I start to have issues with that, too?
….Yes, these are the things that I think about when I’m supposed to be sleeping.
