A Day Made of Glass – Corning

Here’s Corning’s look at the future. On one hand our lives look so much easier and more efficient because of the technology; on the other hand these people don’t go five seconds without touching a screen and the wife can’t even leave the driveway before swiping the navi ten or twenty times.

I like that the video tries to diffuse the predictable “no one has real conversations anymore” response by focusing on how their technology can help you stay in touch with the grandparents and hang with your kids in the morning and have so much time to spare that you can make breakfast from scratch, but dang. Can the future please have a little more style? The daughters’ uniforms indicate that future families will be able to afford private school, but the dad’s 1/4 zip fleece indicates that all the technology in the world can’t give you taste.

Watch here.
