The World Beneath Your Feet - A Digital Rug

As you walk over this rug, the patterns change. I would probably be looking at my feet and trip over something, but it's pretty amazing.

This is amazing. I would get nothing done with this around. Lot's of walking though.

Yes, lots of walking and/or running. However, just like computers, I bet it would "break down" often. There always seems to be some "good news/bad news" with newfangled things - we love them when they work, though!

I wonder if you can change the design every so often. Wouldn't that be fun?

You know, I was going to totally agree about the computers breaking down, but then I thought about today's cars. We used to think of a 10-year-old car old as one that was on its last legs, and things would start going wrong long before that. But today's cars run on computers and they very seldom have major problems of the type those old cars used to. Plus, they last so much longer. My cars are 9 and 13 years old and still going strong. Computers must be at least part of that.

Plus, as far as desktops are concerned, the PC I just retired was still operating perfectly and it was 7 years old. I only traded it in because I needed to upgrade some things and it made sense to move to a newer operating system. The things that go wrong with computers are usually fixable, I've found. On those rare times when I hit a glitch, I can usually muck around online and find an easy fix. So far (knock on wood) I've never had to have an expert look at my computers and I've been using them for almost 25 years. (I have reformatted once or twice, but that's not usually a big deal). Anyway, interesting topic. Sorry for being so long-winded. I do like computers.
