When I was a kid I expected to be driving flying cars by now so I am a bit disappointed. I mean, I like my Toyota, it has a fancy speedometer in the midle of the dashboard and stuff but its not really what I imagined when I dreamed of year 2000 in the 80s. I also pictured that all roads were beneath the ground to make room for all the parks. But that is a different story.
I know there are flying cars, but seeing how people drive on roads I’m not sure I would dare going outside if everyone had one. If the crafts weren’t fully automized that is. To compensate my loss of dreams coming through I at least expect that someone invented cool stuff like :
– Temperature gauge (the ones you stick in steaks to eh steak) with bluetooth! So you can monitor what you steak on your PC. Or better, so you can monitor it on your television which have bluetooth. Or cellphone! (I hereby call this iTemperatureIT just to annoy Apple in the future)
– A software on a machine that has a GPRS/3G card and a Sim which makes a video conference call to you and transmits any program that you have programmed it to send to you. You know, when you’re in that dull 3-hour meeting? Just set your home-PC to call you at 11:05 when the match begins at TV94 and you can see it on your cellphone, beautiful. (I hereby call this iTransmit2You just to annoy Apple in the future)
Any inventions that you miss?
