Comment Were they told it was a test of fire safety equip? (Score 1) 172

I feel like the context given to the test subjects would greatly affect the outcome of this experiment.... For instance, if I were told that I would be testing fire safety equipment, I would probably feel the need to follow the robot even into the wrong room. Especially if I knew it were being tested, my curiosity would probably get the best of me anyway and I would feel compelled to follow the robot regardless since I knew I wasn't in real danger.

This is great for the world and people getting together and carpooling is wonderful for the environment, however as a business model it falls into a much smaller category.

One huge curved 8k display would be my dream working in dispatch I have 2-5 websites, email, proprietary software, mileage program, and notes all crammed onto 3 1080p screens and I'm suffocating.

I built a custom hutch for my 3 23.6" ASUS 1080p LED Monitors (10,000,000:1 contrast) that's 70.8" diagonal screen real estate. 5760x1080 resolution. as you can see it's not a gaming rig, gaming is not very practical for multiple monitors. Multitasking is the real venture here and it's a great help with that. hard to see how thin they are but it looks like cardboard from the back because they're all
