From lattes, to jeans to chocolate bars, to serving portions, to cars and phones, the world is slowly but surely fading from view, gradually disappearing before our very eyes.
Even blogging has been reduced to 140 characters by Twitter. The great gas guzzling cars of the past have given way to fuel-efficient smart city car designs. Mobile phones barely physically exist now that so much technology can be crammed into such a tiny space. Whereas once they were brick like, shoulder strapped, battlefield communication beasts, like something out of M*A*S*H and did little more than it said on the tin, these days they contain the processing power of a NASA space mission and will fit into half a back pocket. The same applies to computers in general, net books smaller than laptops smaller than desktops.
Helicopters! Have you seen what they’ve done to helicopters? You’d have struggled to fit one in the school gym a couple of years ago. You can launch them from your hand and fly them round the front room now. It’s verging on unnatural. File sizes reduced with MP3 compression, microwaves, shrink-wrap, school holidays, policemen. What about iPods? Now even micro isn’t small enough, we need things to be shrunk even further and nano’ed ? the iPod Nano (condemning the old Sony Walkman or Discman to great big, chunky, clunky old museum pieces). There’s nano technology, even the nanosecond, scientists having gone as far as to systematically chop up time into smaller pieces.
You may have noticed it at work too, around the office. It’s not just apartments that are bijoux, it’s happening to all manner of office equipment and supplies, especially print labels ? the standard print label reduced to the size of a mini label. It makes sense too as there are a million and one uses for mini labels – return addressing, small item labelling, bar coding, product labels, ‘supplied by’ labels, inventory control, reminders, overdue invoices, name labels, promo labels, test labels, reward label to name but a few. In light of the fact that everything else seems to be shrinking in size it’s only right that labels should too, otherwise they wouldn’t fit! It’s a case of proportion and relative size. For example a safety label or label that displays the environmental accreditation of a product might have now have only the smallest of spaces in which to be adhered.
