MIT Media Lab gadget

My view of technology has ranged from delight to dismay to dischord lately.  It seems like the interruptions are offsetting any benefits.  I'm not sure whether it's just my age or attitude.  But I'm not happy about my tech trajectory and don't know what to do about it.

Tonight I browsed a link on reddit to a short piece from TED that simply amazed me and brought back some of the thrill technology used to deliver.  It showed a device that purports to deliver sixth-sense experiences.  That's a new phrase that will describe another wave of must-have gadgets every 20 something has before I do.

Maybe it will vindicate the last few years of disappointment in technology that has grown to annoy more than serve.
