TV of tomorrow. Long-exposure photograph of a TV monitor being wheeled through a corridor in the MIT Media Lab. The monitor on the left shows researcher Andrew Lippmann. Set up in 1985 at the USA's Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Media Lab aims to invent the multimedia technologies of the future. According to Lippmann and colleagues, tomorrow's TVs will combine computer technology with digital transmission to create an interactive system that could make conventional print and broadcast media redundant. Wall-sized 3-D screens that respond to the human voice could offer millions of TV channels, personalized news and interactive dramas. (1995)
