It is like going back to renaissance era, but with latest
technology. So, the 3D TV we wanted never came.
the market offered us was first silly glasses with red and
blue lenses looked like made from a recycled tetra pak,
and now a dressed up version that essentially works on
archaic principles. Where are the holograms we
in Arnold movies, in Star Wars, in Star Trek?
Only in Disneyland my friends. And that is after waiting
hours in line. We will not have cool holograms in our
homes any time soon. So, as a reaction, I suggest
up the future and going to the past, several centuries
back. Lets bring the puppets back.
This TV/puppet setup has a TV in the background, but
has two puppets in the foreground. The puppets are like
hosts. Say when there is a football game, you will see
these puppets talking with each other in front of the TV.
And then there will be news shows, and of course comical
news shows. The movements of the puppets will be
streamed through the TV just like any other broadcast,
instead of being in the TV, these puppets will be right in
front of you. Kids will love it. Maybe
could be shows where the audience can take part in
way. Well, it is up for improvement.
This will make Chucky even scarier.
Punch and Judy
Traditional puppet show that uses plenty of sausages. [Ling, Jan 16 2014]
||Let's take it all the way - eliminate the television and run the whole thing through PPL (Puppet Programming Language).
||It could get a little complex - you'd need a deluxe edition to watch sporting events.

||Ah, the searches you send me on...
||Wouldn't this bring out the urge to start shouting "He's
behind you!" in every horror show, and snacking on
||Punch and Judy! That's the way to do it...
||I like this but it doesn't go far enough. Lose the television, and use a variable number of puppets to re-enact the show being watched.
||It could be good for most sit-coms, though I think
without the TV background it would be too boring.
Maybe an e-paper background?
||I'm thinking of something like a rapidly refreshing 3D
printer with an equally-rapidly degrading print medium.
||I think [MB] posted an idea about a printer producing animated images?
||Is this the Gizmonic Institute? Am I aboard the
satellite of love?
||At first I was thinking; yes, yes this sounds like a stunt that Jon Stewart might pull on the Daily show.
