When I think of the future I think of flying cars and jet packs. Like the rest of you, I'm frustrated the future is taking so darn long to get here. I can only hope hearing aids have improved significantly by the time I get "old" because I'm pretty sure me and everyone else who uses iPod earbuds is pretty screwed for permanent auditory damage. However, I'm even more disappointed my floating chair isn't here yet. I've seen them on Wall-E and I think I have the body shape and lack of muscle mass to really fit well into that thing. What, you expect me to walk? Pfft.
Japan's working on something but I think they're going to be too late for me when they get it past the prototype stage.
