A brush with the future

L'oreal have for a mere $200 produced a hair brush which vibrates if you are brushing your hair wrongly. Sadly a waste of money for my limited locks.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: A brush with the future

I wonder which part of the brush vibrates.

It does worry me that with so many devices that 'think' for us we could be making a future where no one will be able to think for themselvesSad

Yes, my toothbrush gets very agitated and noisy if I brush for more than two minutes.  I shall brush till my teeth are clean thank you very much.

It's already happening, they want everyone dumbed down, just look at what they teach in School.

Stopping people thinking for themselves isn't that now called Health & Safety?

I was thinking this morning of the amazing difference between Super-8 cine film of my youth and today's modern action cameras like the GoPro or even on the iPhone. Give a junior school kid a section of amateur cine film and they wouldn't recognise it.

@AlaricAdair and why should they?  you were not taught to ride a bike on a "boneshaker"  or "penny farthing"... i.e. "old technology"... you were brought up in the "modern world" ... just the same as kids of today...

 

Yup !.. you were told/taught about historical stuff, that was considered relevant in your days.. and the same is done today...

I still remember the overhead projector and acetate sheets so essential to conferences and presentations as recently as 15 years ago.  Now try explaining that to a 15-year-old used to laptops and video projectors, not to mention electronic white boards.  (Don't you just love it when a pompous senior manager picks up the wrong marker and acutally puts ink (especially permanent ink) on the whiteboard.?)

Some at my school used to swap the dri-wipe pens for permanent markers to do just that, unfortunately the teachers caught on and started locking their pens in their desk drawers... Grin

I'll never forget a BT 'safety in the workplace' staff meeting where a suit placed an overhead projector on a desk and trailed the flex over to a power socket on the wall.He plugged in, switched on, and promptly turned round and tripped over the flex.

Oh how we laughed! Collapse of stout party, and several minutes until order was restored.
