Televisions have come a long way in the last ten years. From big box looking things, to skinny, sleek machines, we are entering a new age in entertainment, and you certainly don’t want to be left behind.

Well, today we have two of these three, and though the idea of ‘smell-o-vision,’ is often joked about, and parodied on comedy shows, the possibility of it doesn’t seem as far-fetched as it once did.
It is still difficult to guess what the future holds for the advancement television. It doesn’t seem possible for images to grow clearer than they already are; 3D televisions are becoming increasingly common, so what’s left to do? Will they make televisions that provide smells? The guess would have to be no, because there are certain thing watched on television where the smell would only cause you to change the channel.
What would benefit television today? Or is it not the apparatus that needs to be changed, but rather, the programming of the stations? Can television be improved upon? Today, not only do we have quality, and clarity, unlike we’ve seen previously, but many television are, ‘smart televisions.’ They have internet access, which allows users to check their social media websites, make calls on skype and various other things. There are voice controlled televisions, and motion sensors, what more could we ask from technology?
Some people are waiting for a more interactive experience from their televisions; others are nostalgic of a simpler past; but, the sad truth is that televisions are only going to move forward. The better technology developed, the more the consumer wants it. The days of a wooded box wrapped around a screen, where you change the channel with what appears to be a light switch, are long gone. We are children of the digital age, and even we are growing too old for the technology the youth of today have access too.
But, if you’re like most people, and just get on with whatever you have, then you’re in luck because televisions are not going anywhere. So, sit back, relax and watch your favourite show while the rest of the world worries over the next hot technology.
