Ok, first things first. Jeffrey Ellis over at The Stinker tagged me for an infernal meme that you probably have seen floating around...the six word memoir. And you know how I feel about memes... But hey, six words. It'll come as no suprise that my six word memoir is "what the hell was he thinking!". And to put this aside, I'll tag iamnot, Kurt, lime, bee, heyjoe because I haven't seen this one at their blogs and misery loves company...
Enough...on to a post...
I like cutting edge things. But they can’t just be some newfangled pda, music, or phone offering. They have to be truly revolutionary. Let me share a few of these with you. Go ahead; you can admit you saw them here first…
1. Forget about getting a flat tire ever again!
The tire industry is about to be revolutionized thanks to a new design that is coming. It's called a Tweel. I know, it sounds like Tweety Bird came up with the name. Very lame name, but pretty cool idea. That’s right; these new wheels eliminate the need for a tire at all! Doing so also allows performance that they were physically unable to achieve before.
- You’ll be able to drive your Ford Focus 189mph on these tires (well…when you install a rocket engine and a Ferrari body to it)
- You’ll be able to drive on water (ok…maybe only a couple of inches of it, but its still water)
- You’ll be able to pick up digital radio stations (ok, that has nothing to do with the tire; I just made it up…)
With the new playing card option you can now have the clothespin and card set up just like when you were a kid. Awesome!
2. Forget about needing a laptop screen ever again!
New high tech contacts in the future are going to allow you to see the screen right in the contacts. This virtual screen will eliminate the need for a physical one.
I can see a lot of fun uses with these. Imagine replacing somebody’s regular contact with a pair of these and they walk around all day seeing monsters, gnomes, or worse: Tom Cruise. This would be just too much fun. They could bring back the Jackass movies just for this concept alone!
3. Laser TVs
Yeah, you’re gonna feel real stupid buying that mega LCD or Plasma screen TV once Laser TVs hit the market. For one thing, traditional TV technology only allows us to see 40% of the color spectrum whereas these TVs allow us to see 80%! That means all those awful colors you try to avoid in houses being sold around your neighborhood are now available on your TV! Yeah.
Rumor has it that 60 inch Laser TVs will be available for $1,000 in the future. They also use way less power than other large screen options. Those two new power plants they’ve built in your area? That’s right, it’s your fault. It’s because you HAD to have that 84 inch plasma TV!
4. Canned Hamburger
And I’ve saved the most staggering technology for last.
That’s right; you can now buy a canned cheeseburger! God bless technology!
