Future Roundup 08/02/03

Here's the full list of this week's predictions for the future. Two of the five had to do with parenting, both of which were pretty cynical. Actually, the baby-brain-monitor thing is a practical idea — an enhanced version of the walkie-talkie monitors we have now — but the electronics will have to be improved. I don't think we can wire babies up like the one shown in the picture (follow the link.)

In the Future...

...there will be options for parents with fat or ugly kids.

...science and technology will give us back all the monsters they have taken from us.

...potty-training accidents will be greatly reduced via hardwired interfaces to babies' brains.

...elections will be merged with futures markets , greatly increasing voter turnout as players vie for the big November payoff.

...you'll be able to eat unlimited french fries and cupcakes and never gain an ounce.


That does it for this week. Thanks for dropping by. And until next time, I'll see you in the future.
