Ive never seen Star Trek. But when it comes to media or shows predicting the future I'm still waiting for flying cars.
I've personally seen a lot of Star Trek. When I say "a lot", I mean all of it. Every single movie and every single tv episode. So yes, I guess that officially classifies me as a nerd. Sheldon would be proud. ;DFor me, I never watched Star Trek in the 80's (because I wasn't born yet). So when I first saw Captain Piccard use his tablet, I didn't notice anything out of place. To me, that's completely normal. It took me a while to realize that laptops, tablets, "hand held communicators" were fantasy inventions at the time of filming.
Interesting point Wyatt. I didn't consider that the younger generation of viewers would not even notice the technology as futuristic because it is NOWtech. I also see that you are a fan of Portal. Great game series.
I think inventions from long ago are now being made new, fancier, and bigger. In the next 5-10years, something else will take over .
