i thought it was a really good read. what i liked about the article were the wii motes and the blu ray super disc (mainly because of the female holding it)

the brain computer interface and those glasses kind of got me thinking that first person genres might increase with that thing... first person games don't really excite me because i get major motion sickness

Indeed, I thought this was a good article. My favourite tech pieces were Emotiv's Spoc and the 3D glasses.

I thought society would be moving away from physical storage devices like this Blu-Ray Super disc (although it is amazing to be able to fit 400GB on a disc) to everyone digitising their music, movies, games etc. I don't know how successful this will be especially with the price of DVDs falling faster than ever most people may hang on the DVD for as long as possible.

The validity of a Blu-Ray Super disc depends solely on the **** industry. That's not a joke either.

They blocked the word lol...


starts with a P and ends with an orn.

I got really excited for a second there. It would be nice if the forum had a 'lol' filter :P
