I think it is very unusual that we have all this technology, but that slow capture is the current "norm".

Just as I think it is unusual that I can launch a web browser and wait for several moments for the "opportunity" to type a web page into the address bar.

These defects are pervasive, and my hope for the future generation is... they will have plenty of jobs writing improved software that does all this better.
