Was watching a 1997 film Event Horizon and it starts setting the scene by saying we colonise the moon in 2015 and start mining on Mars in 2032. I noticed a lot of films that have graphics that are almost as good as today's imagining we are capable of deep space travel on massive ships and stuff not far in the future but then 20 years later we watch the film and think wow we really haven't done much. Cars from the late 90s imo are not far behind today's, fuel consumption isn't much better as they've all gotten heavier. Hell, some poor countries are only just starting to use efi, developed in the 50s! Movies like The Lord of the Rings imo from the late 90s are still great looking, better than the Hobbit's cgi arguably. We have some OK 3d stuff but it's 2017 and I can't help feeling disappointed that we haven't done much. The dreams of tv shows like Beyond 2000 in the 80s were big, we don't even have hover boards! Unless you count the water jet and magnetic ones that are...expensive and not really that great. Sure we have phones and porn in our hands but these are just small evolutions from laptops, things like the psp Playstation Portable or gameboy. Personally the only really big jump for me since 2000 has been flat screen tv affordability. We went to the moon in the 60s, what went wrong since? I am disappointed.
