So in line with this interest, this past week, I issued a challenge to Vinit from the TARS tech team. Make the TARS image and gif interface better
, so that gif enjoyment could be taken to the next level (level 3654 to be precise).
We brainstormed for a bit and came up with some promising ideas on how we could come up with the best possible interface:
1. Create an all-knowing, all-seeing, omnipotent AI and ask what the best image/gif interface is and how to make it.
2. Take a bunch of “shrooms and LSD” (actual terminology used by Vinit) into the desert, consume said “shrooms and LSD” and hope for a psychedelic revelation about what the best image interface is.
3. Travel to the farthest reaches of the world, conducting a decades long ethnographic study into how different cultures deal with death, afterlife and image/gif interfaces.
4. Figure out the formula for concentrated dark matter, create an inter-dimensional portal gun and travel to a parallel dimension where they have already done any of the above and reached a conclusion on the best image/gif interface.
After deep consideration and thought we decided to go with…
The fourth one.
We created a way to travel between dimensions and found the ideal image/gif interface enhancement on Earth C-137.
