Connecting the Dots

In the picture on the left, the guy with the question mark in his brain is perplexed and he has no clue about how to solve his problem, but it is a good thing for him that he ran into the guy with the lightbulb in his brain.  Lightbulb head is an idea man, and he has an unusual capacity for visualizing and formulating solutions, and he uses this unique talent to get his creative juices flowing.  Ideas just seem to pop into his head all the time and no hurdle is too big for him.  It is not easy being lightbulb head as ideas come suddenly, unannounced and they are often uninvited, and his subconscious is off and running.  His brain is like a giant memory bank that constantly stores, sorts and retrieves data based on his beliefs, previous experiences, memories, skills, and everything that he has seen, done ever since he realized that he had a brain.  He doesn’t waste his time chasing rainbows, instead finds the day-to-day problems, focuses on them and solves them.  He looks at the situation from outside of the box, giving him different, unconventional, and new perspectives and instead of always taking the traditional approach, he is willing to try alternate solutions.

In the picture on the right, both guys are literally reaching out to touch each other via their new telephone service.  Question mark guy thought up this new service and lightbulb head figured out how to implement the virtual reality environment.  It is brand new, and it doesn’t require the user to wear one of those awkward helmets, which can be very confining.  Everything is done on a Smart Phone through this new computer-generated app that places both parties in a familiar atmosphere with scenes and objects that appear to be real, allowing the user to become immersed in their surroundings.  The product is still in the alpha testing stage, as profound questions have been raised concerning what happens if people want to use this for porn purposes.  The convincing visuals will be accompanied by sound, smell, and most importantly, touch to fool the brain, but the owners of the company are thinking about closing this project down, stating that this technology might be socially unacceptable, and most likely illegal in the real world.

  1. ‘He looks at the situation from outside of the box, giving him different, unconventional, and new perspectives, and instead of always taking the traditional approach, he is willing to try alternate solutions.’ That’s the key ‘ different approach’, perhaps. Nice take.
