Ok.. First off.. Leave the Precog's, and pre-crime out of this.  This isn't what i'm asking about.

The cars, the "automated home" the Hologram system that John uses during the movie, "Sick-sticks" the choppers, The retinal scanning ads, etc.  Thats's the technology I'm talking about.

As some people may know, ILM and steven spielburg sat down with a "think-tank" of scientists, to come up with what they foresee our technology being in <50 years.


And they came up with the technology featured in Minority report.


But will those things really happen?

Why not?  Sounds as good a prediction as any to me.  Don't really see the superhighways and intelligent cars, though.  That would take a massive restructuring effort that I don't believe most cities could practically handle.

Probably, its nothing too far out there, it could happen.

I think ads that scanned my retinas and then delivered ersonalized messages would annoy the heck out of me tho. I was thinking that when I saw it on the movie... its gonna happen, and we're gonna hate it.

Id rather it be Matrix Technology. Just create the Matrix Ultimate cyberspace!!!
Limitless possibilities.

One night I ventured to my wooden rocking chair right outside my back porch, and I looked to the sky in the break of twilight, staring into the dark mirror of space, filled with sands of star dust, colossal supernovas and red giants, strings of wormholes and distant planets beyond my grasp. A place where tiny enigmatic hidden black holes tear through the fabric of space and time which, who knows; may lead into other dimensions and perhaps alternate realities. And as I look up at this heavens mirror which my hands can only reach so far through this looking glass, I felt an odd sensation of something looking back staring into my own eyes, staring into a whole other universe of which I new nothing about until I saw my reflection within it, and in that moment I then knew that the key which open the portal doors to parallel worlds was myself.    "The Eyes of the Universe, Chris Landrum"
