If you haven't seen this, you should take a look. I'm not sure which emotion in me wins regarding these devices: horror, disconnection or plain interest. Every day I pay attention I see signs that Blade Runner, The Diamond Age and the general mileau of Johnny Mnemonic are coming closer to me, or maybe I'm coming closer to them. Advertising on every surface. General and palpable misery, leavened with some hope and a bunch of true weirdness. Extreme cultural dislocation.
So, what do you think of these gadgets? What would you do with them if you had them on your vehicle?
PS: Of course I mean Johnny Mnemonic the short story, not the movie; and Blade Runner the movie, not the book.
