TV tech

KCTV Channel 5 was pimping some kick-ass new technology on their news cast last night.

Seriously, every five minutes the announcers were dropping in mentions of this new, cutting edge technology that they were debuting, just in time for the first major snowtastrophy of the season.

What was this new technology? A new form of super live action laser Doppler radar? Pffth, that's yesterday's news. A bitchin' new weather control device? Still in development unfortunately.

Nope, the new technology was a video camera affixed to a news van, the pictures of which show you the road conditions at any given moment.

AWESOME! KCTV5 has invented duct taping a video camera to your bumper.

Actually if my pop culture history serves me well, I'm pretty sure Tony Soprano invented this about 10 years ago.

  1. Thanks for the laugh-out-loud. Those news-and-weather folks crack me up sometimes.


Your turn to riff...
