  1. Write Instead of a Trip Report:
  • It’s 2115. Write a detailed review/description of a historic house/ place museum about the way we live now. Think of the Tenement Museum and other historical places you have seen.

  • Appliances getting replaced with IOT appliances. Fridge, Washing Machine, Hub getting bricked by firmware.

  • Buildings from various eras. Style of construction for each.

Town / country : like met egyptian temple but semi d house. Detached houses/ suburbia still exists but now much more compact and further away from CBD. Space has become an issue. Tape measure on walls of garden/ living room. Oh ma days 700 sq ft.

example of old computer (even screen mouse keyboard paradigm seems outdated, explain from pov, neural interface?)

METHOD of EXHIBITION: Rooms in house, guide beamed into your neural interface. For those without/ novel experience speaker in room describing, meta exhibit: museum exhibits used to be like this. plaque on wall. Meanwhile rich AR visuals are being beamed straight into eyeballs. Has to toggle ads and social features off as endless assault / barrage comes flying at him. Cat gifs exploding all over the place. sloppy coding. Autoplay audio visual ads.
