Technological advances are coming at a blinding pace these days don't you think: Solar Cells, 3d Printing, Robot Dogs, Drones, Self Driving Cars,
cloaking technology, and on and on..........It's light someone turned on a light-switch and "Wham!" the future is here.
Perhaps its just a product of the time when I was born, but it seems to me to be blindingly slow if anything. all the tech mentioned has been mucked
around with for 25+ years and are now just barely coming out in pre-alpha crap versions. To me, I imagine some vampires that have an exceptional
lifespan making sure to slow technology and innovation to a crawl to make sure they get every single cent worth before minor improvements.
Now yes, I can look at the whole picture and think in the last whatever, 40 years we have had mind boggling changes...but if you break it down...what
have we truly accomplished. the computer is more fancy now, but still just a computer. wireless advances has been impressive, but hell, wireless
signals have been toyed with for decades upon decades now...
I enjoy gadgets, but I am less than impressed about proper ground breaking innovation pace.
Still..good work I guess..maybe in another 30 years, they can upgrade and attach feelings and sensors to it..then milk that population.
