As society continues to progress, it becomes more and more evident just how driven it is by its technology. Oddly enough, much of tomorrow’s technology will end up being devices that we’ve already seen before, with classic science fiction proving to be a more significant source of motivation that ever imagined. The inventors, no longer children, look back to what inspired them as children for inspiration now, and in doing so found potential practical uses for society today. What was once considered science fiction technology are slowly but surely becoming real, tangible entities.
