    Most of what we take for granted now was described in science fiction at some point.

    Here's a site that attempts to make some predictions, based partly on extrapolation, partly on guesses and partly on hopes.

    It does make political and religious predictions, so I'd ask you to bear in mind the rules of our forum if you want to discuss anything it contains. There is plenty of science available and this is the reason I'm posting it. I scoured the site last night, and it is truly fascinating.

    Can't wait for self-driven cars. Google's been making headway and at least two states have approved them.

    Remember the 1950's predictions that by the 1960's we would all be using flying cars and Jet packs?

    I tend to be more conservative toward tech predictions -- I look at what's been accomplished and what the market might support for what might be viable in the reasonable future.

    A lot of those 1950s predictions seemed like wishful thinking or fantasy. That's fine if we're talking fiction, lol. But maybe they were just a product of those times, when people were more naive or optimistic, maybe less grounded in reality, maybe more ignorant.

    Information is much more readily available nowadays, and we don't need to trust "experts" (some real, some pretenders); we can easily look for more information and differing viewpoints.

    It's fun to speculate, though.

    Meant to paste this earlier:

    Google's Driverless Car Draws Political Power - WSJ.com

    I expect the first self-driving cars will be expensive, but am keen to see them hit the market.
