Blog Entry For 4/1/2013

Where we're going, we don't need roads.

Home PCs, Teflon, GPS, iPhones, MP3, quantum computing, synthetic biology...science has certainly irrevocably changed the way we work and play...and cook breakfast. According to recent news, Dr. Emmett Lathrop Brown may have been on to something, it would seem.

Sadly, no time travel functionality (yet). But it would seem we may be seeing "personal air vehicles" with vertical take-off and landing capabilities. The University of Liverpool are already carrying out user studies into the ergonomics and haptic control requirements needed to provide a safe, user-centred design for future products.

Head over to the New Scientist website if you want to find out more.

And I managed that all without a cheap joke. Although...I did notice that part of the 4.3 Million budget is going on some funky AI to take care of parking your chopper in a tight spot. Not going there...:-)

Posted by Craig D I live the continuing technological advances in all areas. I can't wait to see what we are using in 5-10 years times. The latest I find interesting is Samsungs thin flexible screen. It will be interesting to see what they do with it.
