I found this video that shows an interesting use of GPS technology.
It speaks to human nature, but also to way technology can be used in ways that are surprising but at the same time nudges the thin line between personal freedom and the Orwellian view of a 'Big Brother' society...

I know, pretty heavy thinking for Christmas, but isn't that what Christmas is for, enjoying the festivities of the season along with taking stock of your life.
Past, present and future... (insert the theme from the Twilight Zone here)

Interesting experiment I have to say. It doesn't tell you too much about GPS's though. Now I have that voice stuck in my head. Shocked

That was indeed very interesting... the woman's voice was really creepy and sounded very unnatural. I would have loved to have seen a map of New York and the paths the all the chairs took.

Thanks for the video!
