Colorado sets Covid Volume Control to 11!

If you’ve seen the movie This is Spinal Tap – you know what this post’s title means: the rock band’s amplifiers were louder than others because their volume controls went to 11 while other bands only went to 10!

Giggle.

Colorado just adopted the Spinal Tap solution to Covid-19 – they’ve added a sixth color-coded Status Dial level – purple!

A sixth level, Level Purple: Extreme Risk, will be added to the dial, representing when hospital capacity risks being breached and most businesses and indoor services must be closed.

Fortunately, “experts” think the human brain can discriminate up to 100,000 (or some think millions) of different colors. Colorado has plenty of color choices left to add more levels to their Status Dial.

It’s over! “What happened to #virtual reality?” as we hit that phase in the news cycle! #VR #VR360

The virtual reality industry has achieved – again! – that point in in the product life cycle where the media declares it’s death!

Over the past year, evidence has stacked up that VR isn’t as hot as everyone thought it’d be, and it feels poised to go the way of the smartwatch.

Per the reporter, Facebook’s Oculus Rift is a failure, the HTV Vive is a failure, Sony PlayStation VR is a failure, Microsoft’s HoloLens might be okay, eventually, and Google is “stumbling”.

There you have it – VR is on its death bed! So say the media talking heads!

This is good news – it means #VR has reached that point in the product life cycle where the media is predicting its eminent demise! That is progress! 🙂
