The mysterious sign on the door

Some time in the future, people going out to the movies will slip on a comfortable lightweight pair of glasses. Through those glasses they will be able to have experiences far beyond the capability of today’s movies.

Stories will take place all around and between people, as though the entire audience has become transported to another world. The rectangular frame that we now associate with visual storytelling will come to seem quaint.

In such movie theaters there will be an otherwise unused room, way in the back, that contains all of the computers which actually run this experience. The room will be isolated for sound, so audience will not hear the whirring of the powerful cooling fans that keep all those GPUs from melting.

On the door of this room will be an arcane sign that nobody will understand. People will just assume it to be some sort of mysterious code for “the room containing the computers.”

Still, people on the staff of the movie theater may, from time to time, find themselves wondering why a room full of computers is labeled with a phrase that makes no sense at all. They will read the sign and scratch their heads at its mysterious message: “Projection Booth”

    Why frustrating?

    Wow, that’s the sort of bad joke I would make.

    Or maybe I’m just projecting. 😉
