I ran across this in Home Theater tonight, and it's seriously cool. It's a video from Corning. Most of the technology is available, and after watching this, all I could say was wow! I want some of this in my house right now!
Kind of cool, kind of creepy, some of it. Some of the Big Brother aspects of some of these technologies bother me a little. I don't want my car calling me by name. (Although this is already a technology in use for some people.)
