The Future of Technology is in the Past or Why use Star Trek as a Model for Technology?

by Sally Applin

Why is it that so many tech companies base their designs and inspiration on past Science Fiction?

Why is 46 year old Star Trek a basis for future directions?

Why is Minority Report what people look towards?

Does our imagination need a Hollywood prototype to be realized?

or

Are we hoping to commercialize on that which has come before?

or

are grown adults trying to recreate their childhood fantasies?
