I’d like to have some of his digital pulse-code manipulation right into my premises !
Love the way the woman’s smoking while talking on the phone!
fantastic! the way she copies the diagram….
I remember seeing this in the 90s and howling with laughter…. then I went to a presentation by a guy from BT Oswestry (called Graham someone I think) who did a millenium version complete with holograms and stuff. If anyone has that one I would love to see it now. Go on BT, I dare you…
Wow, pulse code modulation for video. That’s exactly what all digital video standards use, or at least use before the MPEG encoding.
just dont press the UV button without putting the paper up to the screen, now THAT’s tanning while you work
Oh, wow exactly what my computer does now! Awesome I’m stoked!
1:57 that is some swinging hep cat jive right there
This tech has existed for decades, video phones have been launched several times over and over in history…. and failed every time, the reason is that almost nobody actually cares to see a damn video of someone’s face while talking to them.
How often does someone on a PS3 or 360 video chat over voice chat, even if they have a camera?
They even tried vidoe calling on cellphones a few years ago….. and abandoned it because nobody cared.
In addition to emitting UV, the button would also have to flip the image horizontally or else the printout would be backwards.
But you knew that.
I thnk historically video quality due to cost of bandwidth and quality has been poor on the uptake. With various factors changing, not least the restriction on travel for many now with cost and regulatory restrictions plus improved technology you will see a massive change in the coming years. Check out Cisco’s Telepresence. This is becoming incredibly popular in industry, This will be available in the home within a few years.
Videophones have been available in homes over the years, multiple times.
People just never cared for them, it wasn’t so much an issue of quality rather than need.
As I said, it was available on cellphones, but nobody really cared for it.
Telepresence is a little different than just a simple videophone as it usually means a physical mobile component or at least digital control over the location, not just transmitting video.
i haz one of those ima using it nao!
For me, it’s not that I don’t care…. I actually feel awkward and exposed when I’m video conferencing. In the presence of someone else, I can pick up on emotional and situational cues, and I can also look to see who’s watching me. Over a video however, I’m really limited. I’m not sure who’s watching me and when. It’s a matter of comfort, and you cannot have comfort over a recorded video presence.
No it would not need to do it. The UV would light the trought the film to the correct size. Watch that part again. You do not need to flip the film at all. It exposured just like the view would show. The thing would be as you say if you would need to flip the film and the UV would not exposure through the paper.
It would be somekind success if the price would be lower. But when you pay your house away with videocalls, it is doomed to die.
Blame ISP’s, not technology.
i imagine it’s all going to end some day, they knew what technogly would be around in the near future it’s simple
So funny! XD
My God I Just Can’t Wait for the Future ! Looks awesome
How strange — these webcam-using cave people are better dressed than modern workers.
Tally-ho! I’m just orf to have a videotelephone talk with Bill in Australia.
The woman at the start of that sounded really thrilled about the phone call
when i was a lad it were two tin cans and a piece of string and it cost nowt……….
So, you stick a polaroid film on the screen to get your “copy”? Good lord.
We need more wood-grained faced computer equipment these days.
@rojman123 oh dear lord, ideas like that would make the Jobsian cult wet themselves
Wow! Early MSN and a swanky screen printer. All the rage
we still dont have technology like that yet
@vality1 yes we do
Never seen this before – Brilliant !
@itspoyle i had to resaerch Jobsian cult cus i is English. i dunno innit
That printing with light thing is a good idea. That’s how receipts are printed, aren’t they? Why don’t we use more methods like that instead of ink? Although, then we’d be replacing ink expenses with special paper expenses.
That tecnollogy of video phones exist. People care to comunicate like that BUT the prices of mobiles or cell phones with video call are very EXPENSIVE IT DOESN’T LET the people live in a (MODERN WORLD)
@principecautivo what on earth are you actually trying to say? Why the unnecessary capitals and brackets?
@itspoyle Don’t be fool just READ right?
