Home entertainment technology has certainly come a long way. High end speakers with amazing depth and sense of space, crystal clear HD TVs and various ways to record and store data, home entertainment has reached a new high.
Today, it is possible to record and store programmes on cable tv. There was a time when TV was only available for a certain time in the day, and of course, in black and white. While there is a certain charm to those times past, that nostalgic charm has absolutely nothing on the amazing technology available today.
As technology has advanced it has become possible to develop new home entertainment products, each one surpassing the earlier not just in terms of what it can do, but also in terms of aesthetics. Every age has its own aesthetic values and everything in that time reflects these values.
Today, we live in an age where our aesthetic values are shaped by everything that has passed. Every new ‘look’ is a parody or play on what has passed. This means that we have more variety than ever before in terms of looks and styles as well!
But in general the trend has been towards minimalist design, and this is reflected in home entertainment products as well. Flat screen TVs, sleek speakers that could be mistaken for sculptures, home entertainment has advanced not just technologically but visually as well.
