The other week I saw the video for The World’s First Crowd Sourced 3D Printed QR Code, Live Streamed Via GoPro To A Smart Phone Or Tablet Device, Drone Delivery Ticket System Project. Initially I liked it and thought it was good fun. As time passed though my opinion changed.
I can’t stop but think that everyone in the clip given the chance would get behind a pointless bit of tech if they could. Then create a case study explaining how brilliant they are. Which in my mind makes them all hypocrites.
Then I was sent this post, which I thought was a great reaction.
Yes there are a number of seemingly pointless tech stunts that have been created. Equally there are a number of pointless creative ideas. At least the guys getting out there and building something are learning and sharing from the experience.
I’m whole heartedly behind focusing on creativity and making the ideas king again. However without these “bullshit” tech experiments we would never have seen the likes of The Most Powerful Arm which was a brilliant creative idea with great tech.
