Future TV vs TV Future.

Future TV is endless at the moment. Physical TV will look better and prettier. 
TV future is what interesting to me. TV will be used for what, at where, and how.
I grew up around business, where engineering is importance and beauty is matter, which is probably why I care so much about engineering and architecture. At engineering school, professor would teach me how to turn my ideas into something practical, effective and efficient. Later, when I start working, corporate environment introduces me to new terms such as value proposition, customer and user. 

At home, people is getting used to with turning on TV and then something shows up. However when TV is not used at home, its purpose is changed out of commonly used. Even though it has been seen everywhere for a long time, business is still struggling to use TVs at a workplace and working environment. Regardless whatever it is we call TV, monitor, digital screen or display, it give us futuristic feeling and the 21st century atmosphere. It is part of the game for business to stay competitive. It is part of communications to stay connected with audiences. 

Generally, innovative solutions help to solve social problems while the world keeps turning and time keeps moving forward. People already saw changes from railroad to bullet train, telephone to Skype, mail to texting etc. My parent would say technology changes too much and too fast. Indeed it does. Tools are easier to use. Communications are beyond imagination. Despite the fact that it might sound scarily amazing for some people, I personally enjoy all innovative ideas out there. I, however, think it is getting harder and harder to use or even apply to the real purpose. Drastic changes to cope with business survival potentially contribute to unprepared conditions. With all bells and whistles that come with technology stuffs today, I somehow think who is faster: high-speed communications or Superman? Future TV can handle crystal clear and realistic contents which tempt you to touch the screen whether it is real. At the end of the day, TV itself still relies on what contents are for, where contents are shown at, and how contents get there, then we can decide whether it is useful or useless, engaging or boring etc.
