Thank you Mr. Orwell

For inspiring politicians, governments, and scientists everywhere.

We've now invented the Telescreen.

Maybe next we can have a few world-spanning empires.
I honestly don't see a good enough reason for us to have this technology. I'm a huge supporter of all technology, good and evil, but this is one that should be buried and forgotten.

We haven't invented the Telescreen, we've just invented a screen that can take pictures. A very *small* screen--current prototype is about half an inch on a side. If the Telescreen is what we were going for, we wouldn't make a whole screen out of the material--we'd just use a regular plasma or LCD display and put a little digital camera on top. Chill.

The way you kept saying 'we' was creepy.

Also, I may have been a little overdramatic so I'd get some comments. Worked. :]
