Look Around You   Your Vision of 2000   Wall-o-vision
Look Around You People

 Wall-o-vision - by James White. We all dislike redecorating our living rooms when fashion changes and the wife is unhappy. But it's set to become all too often. The I.C.O.N.I.D (International Collection Of New Interior Designers) predicts that by the year 2000, the frequency of fashion changes in interior design could rise by up to 1000%, meaning your new wallpaper will go out of fashion, before you've finished putting it up. Couple this with the recent new paint tax, and Britain is stuck in an interior fashion crisis. In steps Wallovision. Your wall is fitted with several televisions all connected to a device called the Video Wall System, or VWS for short. Each design is stored upon a magnetic tape cassette, and then transmitted onto your wall. Changing the look of your living room is as simple as replacing one of many cheap cassettes. No lost bank holidays, no accidents with paint. It really is the solution you, and your walls, have been looking for.
