The latest technology

Hilarious Coworker thinks our iPhones look like wallets, so he's started pulling his wallet out whenever someone gets on their iPhone. He calls it his W-Phone, and it's clearly way, way cooler than anything I'll ever own.

Now that Gmail has come out with video chats, Hilarious Coworker is once again coming up with his own much cooler alternative to real-time video: the W-Chat, since it's apparently W-Phone compatible.

He stopped by our desks yesterday morning to bring us the latest and greatest in W-brand video chat technology.

Behold.




You're looking at the world's first W-Chat prototype. The way W-Chat works is that those images are propped up against the computer while you're in a chat with those people.

And even though none of us had any say in what pictures got chosen for this genius tech project, do I glare a lot, so that image is pretty much what I'd look like in a video chat too.

Thanks to recent upgrades in W-Chat, Hilarious Coworker also incorporated expressions into his latest software release.


He once again stopped by our desks to deliver each of us our own strip of paper with various expressions that he stole from Facebook and Flickr.




To really show our emotions, we have a very high-tech system in place:





So, now I just look really, really creepy to anyone who walks past my office while I have these pictures propped up against my computer. But, hey, that's how W-Chat goes. No one ever said technology was supposed to make life easier. Wait....


And yes, this is what we do at work sometimes.

This is literally one of the funniest things I have ever seen... in my life.

Andy said...

This could be yours (and co-workers) finest work... I can honestly say I've never seen anything like it before (for good reason).

Aunt Becky said...

Can I work with you? It sounds WAY better than staying home with my kidlets.

Sounds like someone has some extra time on their hands ;)

I think your job is about 1567% cooler than mine. But that's just a guess.

I empathize with Hilarious Coworker. Everyday, I am heartlessly reminded that I work at a nonprofit and everyone else I know works for companies that exist in 2008. Cameras on computers? Blasphemy! Video chat? We just bought a new VCR!

TKTC: In the very first image, it's the guy in the second W-photo. He is definitely a genius.

Maxie: How can anyone NOT find this amazing?

Marie: That was pretty much my exact reaction as well.

Overcoat: Me too. (Does that make our lives a little sad?)

Andy: I will have to give all the credit to Hilarious Coworker. His creativity & boredom are unmatched.

Aunt Becky: You're hired!

Ringleader: Oh, you bet.

Surviving Myself: Some of the people ARE 1567% cooler than any other coworkers ever.

Chevelin: Hmmm, we should hire you too, then... ;-) Not too sure we'd want to subject you to the role you'd have here, though.
