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.
