Broken leg? We can fix that
Torn retina? We can fix that.
Need a skin graft? We can Grow your own skin in a lab.
Technology has come leaps and bounds over the past 50 years. Scratch that. the past 15 years have seen exponential technological growth.
While the list of things we can do grows, the list of things we’re still waiting for seems not to have been touched.
For example. Hover-boards. Back tot he future came out when? 1985? and yet the closest we’ve come to having actual floating boards are those crappy 2 by 4’s with wheels on them. I’ll admit that watching people bail off those is hilarious though.
In fact here’s a video of just that for your amusement..
….Back on track.
What about X-ray glasses? The technology for this is readily available. It can’t be that difficult to turn a massive machine in a hospital into a pair of glasses I can wear to look through walls and into bank vaults, among other things… Imagine if a doctor could simply look into your arm to see a fracture and treat it then instead of waiting 3 weeks for the prints to come back…Printed photos are so old school these days.
and finally robots. These are actually coming pretty close to looking lifelike. China has a bustling robotic love doll market where the robots look pretty darn real. I’ll let you do your own search for that.
But outside of the love making variety, robots are pretty lame. a German restaurant tried to have all robot waiters and they screwed up every order up and eventually got canned (get it?) to make room for competent humans again. Imagine that, us the competent ones, over A.I.
The day will come when a human brain is downloaded into a robot and we will finally have our newest, lamest, best selling, best friend the Robot.
But none of this exists today.. and I say it’s a bout damn time we figure this out.
Here is one invention i’m pretty excited about even though i’m not colour blind. Glasses that help the colour deprived see in vivid pinks, blues and oranges. Check this out. If this is possible than where is the rest?
Feel free to add to the list of stuff that we’ve been promised by scientists that we still don’t have now…
