    HOW TECHNOLOGY WILL SHAPE TOMORROWS HOLIDAY SEASON

    BEN GOOD TECHNOLOGY GURU

    Rockin rounda glowingChristmas tree!

    Are you a Christmas Scrooge? Theres a subset o society whohave a guilty secret - they hate Christmas and all its traditions,or so says Technology Guru Ben Good. But thanks to modernscience, you can techno-pimp your Christmas with gadgets anddevelopments shiny enough to turn the harshest bah, humbug!into the warmest merry Christmas!

    Chestnuts roastinground a digital freClassic crooner NatKing Cole regales uswith tales o chestnutsroasting on an openfre. Its the traditionalimage o a amilygathered around acrackling freplace,

    warming themselves.Even down to thechimney access or jollyold St. Nick, freplacesare oten one o themost notable eaturesabout Christmas.However, i that imagebores you and yourelucky enough orFather Christmas tobring you some money you can spice upthis old tradition bygetting yoursel a nityholographic freplace!

    A typical holographicfreplace can set youback about GBP500(USD800), but despitethis hety price tagthey are becoming

    increasingly common.These gadgets consisto an electric unitwith a representationo a fre projected onthe ront, to give theroom an authenticwarm glow. O coursemarshmallow-melting andchestnut-roastingis out o thequestion (unless you

    want your high techequipment smearedwith ood remnants).However, they do allowopportunities or un,with some modelscoming equipped witha DVD o dierentsorts o fre. The typicaloptions range rom

    crackling and spittinglogs to glowing coals.However, i you reallyhate the traditionalChristmas and have abit o flm or animationknowhow, you couldmake your own DVDwhich would projectwhatever you want:Father Christmasalling into the fre andbeing burnt alive, aphoenix rising rom theames... the only limitis your imagination!

    The energy-savingChristmas treeWhilst a fre may beimportant or some,its by no meansessential or yuletide

    celebrations. Probablythe most recognisableo all Christmas

    symbols is that o theChristmas tree. OGerman origin, theconcept o illuminatedtrees was broughtinto popular appealby Prince Albert. By1841, it had becomea popular Christmastradition. Many amilies

    now opt or a aketree in order to avoidthe inevitable messo needles. However,scientists may soonbe able to end thereal versus ake treedebate by bringing anew option to the table genetically enhancedtrees.
