Cronenberg – POD Wants To Know You

25 Jul

 

On the Neural-Net recognition bandwagon, Cronenberg presents a lysergic fueled technological dystopian vision of implanted recommendation chips. While this nightmare may well become reality in a few short decades (or you can Sign-Up Now…), the deadly-serious satire and nightmarish visuals give pause for thought about the future of technological guidance and hallucination.

“POD (Personal On-demand) is an emotional sensory learning and data-mining organism designed to enhance your life. This state of the art biotech implant will guarantee you personalized recommendations that are 99.999% relevant all the time. POD grows with you to become an intuitive companion, fulfilling your deepest desires on demand.”
