And I’m sad to say that we’ve come up a little short on some of the films predictions. Although for all our shortcomings we do have a couple successes:
– Video phones — I like to think that FaceTime and Skype are a little bit cooler than the big screen video phone.
– Computer Glasses — So we haven’t exactly perfected these, but I think that’s okay. Computer glasses are a little bit creepier than “Back to the Future II” could have possibly imagined.
Okay, so it’s not a long list. But with exception of the hover boards, I don’t think we’re missing out on much. Flying cars just sound like a bad idea.
