A magazine competition invited people to come up with "invented" inventions of the cyber-age.
For example, a solar powered clothes drier (a rope) and a hand-held word processor (a pencil). Can you guess what this is?

It's a graphic media emulator. High-resolution, thin-screen monitor that produces near-perfect emulations of all graphical media. Used as cosmetic analyzer.

What is it?



Answer

A mirror

Resolution is not just the measurement of how many dots you have making up a print or screen image, as I understand it the term refers to the sharpness or detail of a displayed image.. and seeing as a mirror is displaying an image... ^_^
Oh and your teaser was just read out on the radio in New Zealand. Congrats!

I liked the thin screen comment! Maybe the "all graphical media" was a bit much.. I got it, but it would have been alot harder without the word "cosmetic" in there.

Feb 24, 2005

Your choice of words was very good and confused me until I saw "cosmetic". Gee, does that mean I spend too much time looking in the mirror? Good job!

Mar 12, 2007

Got it right off (but it was still fun) and you had to put some thought into describing a mirror in this way!
SweetPotatoAus*
Feb 24, 2008

I searched 20 pages of "Riddles" before I went back and found out that the ctegory was "Science."

I searched 18 pages of "Science" twice and still did not find "Retro-Breakthrough 1.

Feb 24, 2008

I think "cosmetic analyzer" should have been made the hint, but this was very good.
kukuzyavochkawa*
Feb 24, 2008

I was guessing pocket mirror with the words "cosmetic anylyzer", because it's hard to see that in a big one.
smartymarty**
Feb 24, 2008

Cosmetic analyzer gave it away for me. Thanks
hpostonAus*
Feb 24, 2008

vbguy101 RetroTeaser 1 is in the Other section, not riddle or science
doeheadAus*
Feb 24, 2008

Thought it was pretty easy. Cosmetic analyzer gave it away.A womans favorite place.
bestgirl*
Feb 24, 2008

I couldn't believe I got this! I never get science ones. However, I guessed, not figured it out. Still, I got it!
bradon182001*us*

Perfect teaser. I loved it. What more can I say?

Feb 24, 2008

That was a great one. As soon as I saw the word cosmetic, I knew what it was. Thanks for posting.

I got it!!! Usually I am not very good at these, but, I thought it was fun and easy.

Feb 24, 2008

Hm. I was thinking photograph, but I like the answer of mirror.

Great job!!

Feb 24, 2008

finding retro1 was harder than the actual teaser but then I got smart and looked at your teasers and now I feel twice as smart.

I fault the quality of any emulator that reverses left for right. Graph an upward trend; its reflection is downward.
avonmaAus*
Feb 24, 2008

I got off on the wrong track with "graphics." I kept thinking of letters so the cosmetic thing didn't compute at all for me. In retrospect, it is a good teaser, though.
angelawrence94us*
Feb 24, 2008

very very clever. i never would have gotten it if i hadn't clicked reveal answer .
nice teaser
dogg6pound9Aus*
Feb 24, 2008

great teaser... the "cosmetic analizer" gave it away for me also, considering my wife and 10 year old daughter are constantly in the mirror

That is SO STUPID!

Good one! "Cosmetic" made me think mirror right away. Thanks!

I totally nailed it! Yay!

I didn't get it last time or this time either.

Easy, but fun. Nice.
precious1026Aus*
Feb 24, 2011

These Teasers become extremely techy. Graphic Resolution would include Pixels, color charts, ingrained within the emulator. Mirrors are Reflectors. Mirrors reflect a perfect image of whatever is being displayed.

Good Teaser when it makes the mind or brain calculate possibilities, any or all.

ahh! I was thinking pencil or graphite, but I get it now! Good one!

I got it from the very last sentence. I don't know how or why, but I said mirror and it was right. It made me laugh!
cutebugAus*
Feb 24, 2014

Very easy. When I look in a mirror, I see something very scary.

Excellent teaser! Brilliant, fun, and moderately easy. Great work.
