Netflix has recently released a new “Netflix Original” called Black Mirror. The show has a sic-fi spin and incorporates new technology, even more advanced than our world today.
Most of the characters in the show have an interesting piece of wearable technology. It’s called a grain, and it allows the characters to rewind and re-watch any part of their life that has taken place with the grain implanted in them. The grain is imbedded in the skin right behind the characters ear, and they can watch scenarios from their life through their eyes. The first 4 and a half minutes of this episode show this pretty well.
Imagine a world where this is actually possible; where we can re-watch any part of our life. In episode 3 of the show, two of the characters are fighting and they use the grain to enhance the argument by going back and proving their points through watching certain parts. Our world is so quickly advancing in terms of technology that I wouldn’t be surprised if this actually was a thing sometime in the future, and I’m not the only one.
Black Mirror is definitely the current Netflix craze, and if you haven’t watched it yet I highly recommend that you start it sometime soon. It’s a great sci-fi thriller that does a great job of displaying the technological abilities that our world possesses. It’s futuristic and keeps you on the edge of your seat at the same time. And who know, maybe in the future we’ll actually be able to do things like this. I mean, the show is definitely sparking some ideas for people.
