Well, while I don't drink soda, I think that what a lot of people are probably waiting for is a machine that mixes up different brands of sodas or even different kinds or flavors of soda and lets you create your own soda.

 

You mean one of these? My university has one. They're okay.

Of course, run out of a particular flavor for one, you run out of that flavor for all of them.

Well, true, very true...  I think that the people that I was talking about, though would want it to be constantly stocked with fresh drinks.

In the future, not all robots will be equal.

 

This is because not all robots today are equal. Some are a little.... challenged.

And here's an actual commercial.

They call 'em hoverbikes, but these are really just drones.

^^ I saw that on daily planet. The drone reminds me so much of the movie Oblivion with tom cruise in it, although there's no grass.

Beijing. Not Blade Runner, Beijing.

This is depressing and disgusting, I would never live in Beijing or in any other Chinese city, Chinese government should do something about the pollution, China is the cancer of the Planet.

I wonder if kids ask their parents what Beijing was like "before the sun went away."

Disgusting ...

"Traditional virtual reality."
Yikes, that's a phrase I never thought I'd hear until 2050-something. Not 2015!

And this is Taipei 101

I always imagined the future as a time of more reason, empathy, and peace, not less. It's time for a change.
