I grew up watching Start Treck A LOT
I was always in aw of all the great futuristic devices that looked so impossible to realize EVER
- Little hand-held screens that contained whole books that you could read on them.
- The communicator
- Injections that don’t hurt
- A computer that you can speak to and it will do what you said / answer
What do we have nowadays?
- Phones that work without a cord
- TV that you don’t need cable for
- Tablet TV with Internet connection
- Cellphones that carry 16 GB of data (yes guys, that’s actually a lot)
- Cars that run on vegetable oil or electricity
I am now 30 years old. I just got my first smart phone about 6 weeks ago. I am still amazed at all the things it can do that I did not even think about.
I have a fucking kitchen timer on my phone. I have an app that tells me when the bus comes, I have a flash light. My phone can make photos and videos better than the first digital camera I had. There are games, diet apps, books, everything you can imagine. My phone is connected to the internet no matter where I am (unless in a lift or so).
It’s interesting how far science got within only 20 years. Looking forward to the next 20 years.
