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?


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


are grown adults trying to recreate their childhood fantasies?
