the G20 Summit 2010 was in Seoul this year. Everywhere you went, you see signs, banners, billboards, anything for the G20 Summit.
So while I was at City Hall, me and my uncle saw these white spherical domes. We got curious as to what it was, so we went into it.
It was a type of technology exhibition.
Upon entering the dome there was a display of the history of television.
Well first it went from the gramaphone.
Then the first tv’s that Korea had. My uncle told me not too many people had a tv back then. Only a handful of people had tv’s.
He told me that my grandfather (his uncle) was one of the few people that had a tv in their homes because he was a councilman. It’s pretty cool, I really like learning about my family, especially about my grandfather (may he rest in peace).
So the timeline says Europe-1936, U.S.-1938, Korea-1956
The first tv on the left is a color tv but Saumsung.
Then the Analog tv.
And then the current types of tv.
Samsungs version of the Ipad- Galaxy Tab. (I’m debating if I want to get an Ipad or the Galaxy Tab– I’m definitely loyal to my brands- Apple and Canon– but I’m in Korea. I feel like I should be loyal to this country 😉 )
the 3D magic book. Where you touch the computer screen and swipe your fingers to turn the page. Technology these days. I think it’s all really cool and all, but I think I will make my kids read from actual books. I don’t like reading from my Iphone and I don’t think I would buy a kindle because I like holding the actual book when I’m reading.
(sorry my photos aren’t up to their usual standards. There were just a lot of people so I didn’t want to get in their way)
The worlds first Nano 3D Tv.
The world’s largets full LED 3D tv. It looks like it’s a game of Halo or something like that.
It’s pretty cool how technology has come along. Sometimes though, I like the simpler things in life.
