Sci fi authors have, for decades now, envisioned a future with ubiquitous, pervasive advertising. That doesn't mean we shouldn't fight it, but we shouldn't really be surprised....

"Transmitting" advertisement/commercials into our dream ala Futurama cannot be far off (I hope I'm wrong). Perhaps this would be something a hotel could offer to reduce the cost of the room? Trying to think of a positive application of this idea.

Brave New World: learn a foreign language while you sleep, as well as subliminal indoctrination.

This reminded me of the future of the television in the Idiocracy.


Looks like YouTube.
