I haven't really thought about it too much until recently, but it seems our technology is really starting to kick ass.
Think about it...
We had a computer beat Jeopardy champions.
A look into the future of gaming with hardware you can, technically, put together right now.
We're getting closer to printable organs.
Google has a car that drives itself.
Scientists MIGHT have found evidence of life not of this world.
There's tons more examples but... it's 2 am and I need sleep. If you have any more good examples, leave a comment. I think we're in an amazing time right now and I can't wait to see what the future brings.
