Over just the last few decades, technology has come a long way. Whether you're talking about consumer electronics, helping handicapped people in the medical industry, or astronomic discoveries, technology is growing at an incredibly fast rate.
Lots of evidence shows that we've had many technological advancements. Originally only in science fiction movies, we now have holograms that can be viewed with smartphones, or touched physically, we are discovering more and more planets than ever before, technology that once took up the space of the bed of a pickup truck is shrinking into a pocketable all-in-one device, and we can even read people's thoughts with technology designed to interpret brain waves.
It's not semantically correct to say that we're currently living in the future, because we're actually living in the present, but it's definitely safe to say that we're closer to the future than ever before. All of those favorite childhood science fiction movies, like Back to the Future, and Star Wars, appear to be coming to life, slowly but surely, as we see modern technology come to fruition.
It definitely makes you wonder what will come in the near future as amazing minds in the technological world continue to innovate.
