George Jetsons miracles come true...?
I laugh when I think back to about age 10, watching some very serious lofty person commenting on the news that "everything that it was possible to invent had been invented."
At that stage I knew George Jetson's wireless remote control and TV that he could talk to on the wall was coming.
It was just one of those things that made me a weird kid to hang out with.
If you travelled back 35 years and handed that 'We've done it all' guy a working iPhone, what would he say?
Would he not believe it was real because he couldn't see the wires? Of course not. He might initially think its a trick, but I bet he would want one.
In much the same way we can't always explain something miraculous - but thats only because we haven't learned the technology behind it. Despite all our technological advances, it appears we are only using around 10% of our brain. What is the rest of it for....? and what else is possible? Who can say?
The Jetsons started in 1962. That's 50 years ago.
