The Experience Tube is my new favorite thing and yes, despite the wacky infomercial spoof promoting it, it's real.
What IS the Experience Tube?
Well, it's a long, striped fabric tube. One person puts their head in one end and another person puts theirs in the other. The couple then gets to look and interact with each other through mesmerizing confines of the tube.
Officially it's described as a "revolutionary analog device which connects one experience to another."
Using only soft striped fabric and the most sophisticated facial recognition technology ever developed (installed standard in current model human brains) the tube replaces all peripheral distractions with an unbridled visual feast of stripes and laughter! Simply upload a couple of faces into each end and make your own internet, instantaneously! Immediate vivid connection, with no subscriptions, user agreements, invasive advertisements, or spotty service!
The downright delightful creation is the "longtime dream project" of Nicholas Toll, an artist in Santa Fe's Meow Wolf collective. It's available online or in person at Meow Wolf for $24.99.

Want to keep the dentist away? A little tooth care at morning and night isn’t bad, but it won’t keep the stains from smoking or fried foods at bay for long. If you enjoy your food and want to avoid the consequences, an upgrade from that old analog toothbrush can make a huge difference. Among […]
If your office works at all, it uses Microsoft Office. Those icons for Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook are as familiar around some workplaces as the coffee machine. So familiar, in fact, that they get taken for granted – and rarely used to their full potential. Whether you need a crash course in the essential tools […]
It’s a great time to be a maker. 3D printers are on store shelves for anyone to buy, and coder kits like Arduino and Raspberry Pi are letting kids as young as 9 or 10 dive into the Internet of Things. Here are a few examples of our favorite tech toys, all priced low enough […]
