Yesterday, a genuine Vision of Hell. Orwellian, Wall-Ean, it was a glimpse of what might happen if we let it, what the future could look like if idiocy wins.
LaGuardia airport, Terminal D.
Every chair and table in Delta’s entire terminal – whether in a bar, in a restaurant or at a departure gate – is accompanied by an iPad. These screens connect to airport info, games, food menus and shopping. Hundreds of people stare alone at screens, occasionally touching them, and having food delivered to wherever they’re sitting.
Stare, consume, stare. It’s horrifying.
