2011, The Future is Now?

10 Jan

When I think of the future, I think of flying cars and holographic phones. Not sounding familiar? Well that’s because we seem to be a little slow on the development. If the future isn’t now or next year then when? I don’t know about you but I feel like we are still pretty close to middle age technology. Where is my virtual portable television? Come on sienttists, work your magic. I want to have a robot assistant like one of the robots from the movie AI! Make with the artificial intelligence already.

I happen to be a big fan of futuristic movies and my favorite happens to be The Fifth Element. This movie is great. It’s filled with action and aliens and fighting and, drum roll please, flying space cruiseliners. How much longer must we wait for flying chinese food restaurants. It’s not fair! 😦 By the time any of this sort of technology comes out i’ll be old or dead and then it won’t be as much fun. We all know time machines will never be invented. It’s kind’ve obvious because no historical events have changed or anything like that and building a time machine could kill us if someone went back and killed off the monkey that started the human race.

Maybe flying cars are a little too much to ask for becuse lets face it, ther would be tons of air traffic and if someone’s engine died they would fall out of the sky and there would be no hope of survival for them. Not to mention the great amounts of smog it would create in the lowet levels and force us to build taller buidings and live in houses built 20 stories above the ground.

One thing that isnt too much to ask for though are the holgraphic cellphones. Not only would it be awesome but we would have less to carry. Maybe put the hologram on a watch and press a button when a call is coming through and the caller pops up. That’d be awesome. Everyone would have one too!

Now about artificial intelligence. If we could create something so amazing it would be a pretty big seller! Come home from work and your starving. Just call your robot and ask them to make you something. Need help with your homework or job presentation. No problem. Just ask your robot to look in their computer database and help you out.

I don’t know about everyone else but I can’t wait for a future like that. Maybe I should have myself cryogenically frozen like Fry from Futurama and wake up later on!
