It's a Brave New World. And Getting Braver and Newer All The Time

Have you seen this yet?



It's either completely amazing or really creepy depending on the mood I'm in when I watch it. (And yes, I've watched it more than once)

On the other hand, I may never have to fix my real life hair again. Do you think avatars wake up with bed-head?

Is that real? What?

I am simultaneously amazed and freaked out. Something inside feels strange.

Vern said...

Do you think it could clean my bathrooms?

The Mom said...

That is so cool! My boys are now very excited!

Jennifer said...

This is truly amazing. Maybe they could have a clean the room game. Where it could scan the room and tell them a score. That way I wouldn't have to come in and say "still wrappers on the floor, fix the pillows and there are fingerprints on the t.v."

Jen- is there a mom in America that wouldn't buy that program?
You're not just smart, you're BRILLIANT.

I think Jennifer's on to something---anything that becomes a competition for kids is awesome. Heck, I'd clean harder if there was a game like that:)

Rachel O said...

Wow... umm, cool, yet creepy. Kind of reminds me of all those 1984, Brave New World, distopia books, mingled with that one Tom Cruise movie that I forget the name of.

Lara said...

Wow. Truly amazing. And a little scary.

Jillybean said...

That is cool!
I'll buy one when Jennifer gets her game developed.

Cherie said...

I have no doubt this will be a reality sooner than later. Very cool!

It almost seems too good to be true. (Seriously, how lazy have we become in this world....)

Emmy said...

Holy cow, that is crazy! How in the world does it work?? Is it for real?

Rhianna said...

Is that real?

Sue said...

Wow, it reminds me of something from Back To The Future. Oh. Am I the only one who is old enough to remember Back To The Future? Well, it's better than what they had in the movie but it reminded me of that. AND the clean your room game - AWESOME! Far better than what I called "Point and Pick" which my kids hated. I would threaten "Do you want to play Point and Pick?" Where I would point and say "Pick up your socks, pick up the backpack, pick up your dirty laundry, blah, blah..." My kids HATED Point and Pick. But they would love Jennifer's game.

What I want to know is. . . what happens if there's identical twins?

Dave said...

how about a game like mario party. we'll call it "Democrat Party," and the winner gets to use the camera to pick what they want out of other people's houses.

So what's the point of a skateboard program? You can do that outside.

Although the idea of pick up the room for points sounds intriguing.
