Imagine clothing brands, or even car brands, had the same idea of streaming services but for your purchase of their product. You no longer own the clothes you've purchased but are permitted to wear them for a limited time and must pay a fee. "Smart Clothes" or whatever are always connected to the internet to help keep brands track your end of the bargain.

    Well for cars, they already collect various fees to keep your car working properly.
    But you just gave a new idea for clothing brands!

    It will be. In the future, even forums and wiki sites will be streamed to you as a semi-interactible video. HTML and browsers will be a thing of the past, no more right-click --> save link as, no more highlighting text. Imagine watching a very high quality video of someone reading a forum. That's the future for everyone.

    I mean, when I was a kid so did I always imagine a random guy dreaming up my life and that random guy was being also dreamt up about by another random guy and so on... not so Farfetch'd

    Why stop there? I've taken surveys where ideas similar to this were presented, including even (ahah) Smart Humans.

    surprisingly alot of that has to do with newer tech or ideas being placed in those cars to keep up with consumer demand, you also have regulations and there's only like 3airbag manufacturers out there which can explain why so many cars have recalls for them when they go bad.
