Where's the 2010 we were promised?
2010 is almost over, and while everyone is doing their roundups, over at Wired's GeekDad, they're writing up what sci-fi promised us that the decade didn't bring.
Topping their list? That old perennial gripe, flying cars. Not only do we not have them, but author Jason Cranston Teague points out that flying cars are probably never going to happen from a logistical standpoint. Security issues, he says, will likely keep us grounded for a very, very long time.
Other items on the list include a moon base, anti-aging pills and clean, cheap, unlimited energy.
It will be interesting to see Cranston's next article, about the things sci-fi did get right about the world in 2010. In the meantime, sound off about what you thought would be here by now that isn't.
