No, no. See, the technology for this has existed for some time - I'd happily bet that some form of this device or another could have been built for regular television in the 1950s, it just might not have been terribly convenient or elegant in execution.

No, this is The Wonders of Marketing - the fact that our consumer culture has reached the point where this and a million other Crapventions™ can be taken seriously enough by a large enough number of people to make their very existences economically feasible (if still logically absurd).
