Living in the Future, Star Trek Style [INFOGRAPHIC]
I have pointed it out before in postings here, on Twitter, and on our various shows, we are living with Star Trek technology already today… well, in many areas at least. In some ways, we surpassed what was predicted 45 years ago when the series premiered. For example, fax machines are really a relic of the past (even though some insist on still using them). We saw similar technology in Trek originally. Today we have iPhones, iPads, flat screen HDTVs… it is almost the bridge of the Enterprise right there.
Every month there seems to be a new post somewhere comparing today's technology with that of Star Trek's technology, so I won't repeat that here. Though with that said, I thought I would share the following infographic on it. It is not complete (in addition to fax machines which are now passé today, we saw Uhura wearing what can be compared to today's bluetooth ear pieces. Neither are represented on this graphic, but there's probably too many to include in one graphic anyway).
