    People will complain "Back in my days, we didn't have 64k tv, but a mere 8K!"

    Pretty sure you are still young enough for this to be considered "your days", even if not your "child days".

    yea well, back in my days, we had 240p tv
    our biggest pc hard drive had like 2-3 gb
    we had no Bluray or even DVD
    we had VHS (idk if it's the same in english)

    When we were returning a rented movie at video club, we had to pay a penalty if our VHS wasn't rewinded xd

    Ok, yeah, i'm not old enough to remember that. I'm still pretty young. However i do educate myself, so i do know what most of the old stuff is.

    I have never experienced a game boy or a game cube. One thing i notice is as i get older the more i notice how good bad quality seemed to be. I recently plugged my Wii with an AV cable into my TV and i was pretty shocked.

    The TVs will be in our heaaaaads. If a given generation, let's say we're talking about 20-somethings, since you're the OP, get to be around 70, I expect something to have replaced the TV, and overtaken it. Or at least some new form of TV, much like how we got flatscreen HDTVs after CRTs.

    As a confirmed vulture a dead tinker's workbench has appeared broadly similar whether it was the 80s, 90s, 2000s or 2010s when I have seen it and bid someone's clueless widow a pittance for it, photos would also suggest other than computers becoming a thing "normal" people would play with then earlier workbenches were much the same.

    As for the general principle... eh. I can't predict that far ahead, much less with the potential current tech has and what science is doing (with the predictive/calculating methods available today then "a lot of time on a supercomputer" gets you real results in medicine and materials engineering, if Moore's law vaguely holds or 3d chips or something allow us to continue increasing computing power then that will change everything).

    I still wonder
    Because, for those who are old enough to having seen this
    They introduced the Wii in elder's residence maybe a decade ago
    and yes, elders loved it
    They played tennis, bowling, golf, and such
    They really enjoyed the Wii :)

    You expect a resolution increase to that magnitude despite the mk 1 human eyeball being able to perceive nothing close to that and for there not to be decent hip replacement surgery by this point?

    I mean I know a lot of places have a bit of a form over function problem but that is too cynical even for me.

    Why is this in the EoF?
    Could move it to GOTC if you'd like Nocto.

    I must admit that I'm legit curious to what the old folks home will look like in >2050.
    I remember me granny being in one and she had a big CRT on her room.

    Things like this don't belong in the EoF imho, it's a really interesting question.

    well... maybe flatter screen?
    When I went to get my tattoo yesterday, the secretary used her computer
    And damn, the screen was flat
    maybe 0.7cm or so... yes VERY flat

    I remember in the 90's I was 4 and living only with mom in a motel and I would always misbehave and throw tantrums because we couldn't afford anything and lived poor. 20 years later, mom's dying and not even money can change that. What I would give to go back to the 90s..
