Physicist Shaun Hendy joins Graeme Hill for this week’s Science Report to talk about the feats that technology has and hasn’t made.
Arthur C. Clarke predicted a number of technical advancements; which ones made it and which ones did not?
We all daydream about what the future will be like. So now that the future is here – the expectations we had for it are unevenly distributed.
Well, the internet made it to the future.
During the 1960’s and 70’s a large variety of technical advancements were predicted .
First the pair discuss the things we thought we would have but don’t. Whether this is hovercrafts, flying cars and jet packs they cover them all.
Then they take a look at the technological advancements that were predicted and have occurred.
