In Japan there is a real all-encompassing a cult robots. And it is not surprising that the first robotic presenters have appeared in the Land of the Rising Sun. Them for this purpose by a group of Japanese scientists
These robots are visually very similar to humans, but have a much more professional opportunities, than live presenters. They can read the news in different voices with a wide range of intonation, and easily switch from one language to another.
For a start, scientists in Japan have created several robots presenters with different looks. The young mechanical girl “works” TV news announcer, more mature and strict lady acts as an expert on science and technology.
In the future, planned large increase in staff broadcasters under different themes newsworthy events.
Television with smells
One of the most promising technologies that heralded science fiction in the first half of the twentieth century, is the transfer of odors at a distance, including via and television. But over the past decade, no significant progress in the implementation of this idea has not happened. All research and experiments in this area have failed.
But in recent years, finally began to appear relatively successful attempts to get the tv to transmit smells. As an example of this can lead technology Smell-o-Vision, developed by researchers from the University of Tokyo. It need set at four corners of the TV fans, centrifugal air flavored toward the viewer.
These fans are connected with the flavor capsules that will exude smell when heated. But the signal when they start to warm up, and with what intensity, will be given to it through television.
Live broadcasts from viewers
The rapid development of the Internet, wireless networks and mobile devices has led to, what in journalist turned any user of smartphone. It used, with the organization of an event online, it was necessary to drive the van there television with satellite dish. Now it is enough to send a man with phone.
Broadcast-stream in the last few years have become very popular on the Internet. Random people started showing live the most interesting and important events that occur even in the most remote corners of the globe. And traditional channels was found to not only use the web to record streaming video, but even these include broadcast live on the television.
We can assume that the further development of technology lead to streamers that themselves receive the same large audience and authority, as and TV channels.
Personalized TV Social TV
The lifetime of the television channel communication process with the audience was one-sided. The signal from the studio through the translator was on the TV is the user, placing it in front of the only choice – watch this channel or switch to another. With the advent of the Internet and TV, which are able to connect to it, the situation began to change gradually.
Due to the increasingly popular technology Social TV, TV is transformed into a social network. Now the viewer can not only watch programs and films, but also to chat with other viewers in chat rooms and on separate pages and forums.
Social TV allows you to leave comments and advice regarding this or that television product, as well as receive targeted advertising. After all, now it turns out that a grown man forced to watch commercials on TV presentation feminine sanitary pads or children’s products. Development of Social TV leads to the fact that each will receive advertising of goods in which he personally interested, as is happening now with contextual advertising in Google AdWords.
TV in 3D
Three-dimensional images made it to the cinema a few decades ago. New popularity gave them the output movie “Avatar” by James Cameron, and since then a rare blockbuster does not go the cinemas in 3D. In recent years, the volume picture began to penetrate and TV.
Even began to appear TVs designed specifically for broadcast 3D-software. However, with this task excellent job and conventional television sets, in which there is a stereoscopic signal. There are also devices that allow us to see three-dimensional images without special glasses. Technology does not stand still.
Critics point out that the general public is unlikely to accept a bang 3D-TV, especially news and documentary programs. But sports broadcasts and movies with lots of special effects quite possibly eventually get serious popularity in stereoscopic format. This is confirmed by the experience of recent years – in different countries of the world there were even some TV channels broadcasting in 3D cinema, football, tennis and other competitions.
