In Which The Future Is Now

So, normally I write my blog posts on Sundays.
Yesterday, I just plum forgot. I was in bed at like 10:30 last night and realized it didn't even cross my mind.

So weird.

So instead, you get this link that every single one of you should read. It's easy and fast and AMAZEBALLS.

Seriously

Very cool! Yet still no flying cars. ;)

Cool, a Monday assignment. On the way over.

I saw a video by Corning about the future use of flexible glass. Imagine a computer screen that you unroll like a poster.

I went to the Science Center here in St. Louis and spoke with a guy from an organization that brings scientists and inventors together. He credited science fiction with fueling the imagination of these great minds. So incredible!

I still want teleportation.

Rena said...

Holy Holodeck, I want one!

Yeah, those were pretty much some of the coolest things I've seen in a long time.

Annalisa Crawford said...

Is it wrong that I was most excited about the holodeck?

Johanna Garth said...

Silk stronger than steel...total amazeballs!

Lola Sharp said...

I like that you said 'plum forgot'. People up north don't use plum often enough. :)

Also, teleportation FTW. I wish I wish I wish it could happen, so I could Go Places and Visit Friends at will.

Have a marvelous week.

Dude... The holodeck! Invisibility cloak! All the 3D printing!

*Begins writing next year's Christmas list* (I wish.)

Thanks for the link. Did you see that there's a website online that shows the maps of many a fantasy world out there in glorious color?

Jamie Gibbs said...

Awesome list! I'll give it a proper read now :)

You just 'plum' forgot. LOL! Love it. Can I use that in a book? :-)

BTW, I do this all the time. When I do I just post the next day instead.

AMAZEBALLTASTIC. Or something like that. I only wish the article had linked to the original stories so I didn't have to Google every time I wanted more detail. How difficult is that to do? Get on it, science!

Southpaw said...

Cool link. It's pretty amazing how much things have changed over the years.
