Thanks, a much more comprehensive video from Airbus, rather than the edited clip I saw on the Today show. Some marvelous ideas, and I love future things. When people sometimes wanna play the "what will you miss the most when you die" parlor game (assuming we CAN miss things), I usually answer I'll miss seeing something like this come true, or just reading tomorrow morning's headlines.
Although I'm always dubious about predictions of the future. Ever since I went to the 1964 New York World's Fair and used the demo video phones at the Bell Telephone pavilion. We were assured they'd be in everyone's homes & offices by the early 70s. Well you know how that turned out -- we're still struggling to make stuff like Skype work well, and that's an unintended offshoot of the largely unexpected civilian exploitation of the ARPANET/Internet.
Or about the space travel we were promised? We were supposed to be living full-time on the moon by now, and visiting Mars. Living a "Jetson's" world with no traditional cars, flying around without need of roads. Our local tire store still seems to be making a good business putting tires on cars, though, like it's been done for over 100 years.
Of course change comes, and I've seen it in my lifetime. But often not were you expected it, and not when or where the experts predicted it. So again, you'll forgive my skepticism, hopeful though I try to remain.
