I saw yet another article about the wonders of the future that are coming out of MIT’s Media Laboratory.
It occurs to me that I’ve seen these wonders proclaimed for about the last 25 years. Yet I’m not talking to my house or picking up information through my fingertips or having robots trim my ear hair or doing any of the astounding things they’ve said for 25 years were just around the corner, like Herbert Hoover’s prosperity.
Is there anything that has entered daily life that was originated at the Media Lab? Are there at least specialist or industrial applications? Or has it been all hype under HypeMaster M.C. Minsky?
