    I learned that the pacemaker was invented by mistake when a researcher was inventing an oscillator to record heart sounds when he pulled the wrong resistor out of a box. When he assembled his device, it began to give off a rhythmic electrical pulse. It was then he realized his invention could be used as the pacemaker.

    What's the movie at the end when the guy fights with the ai cab? What about the one in which the guy refuses the auto pilot?

    Science fiction and science innovation have been intertwined since sci-fi's origins. What has been your favorite example of fiction turning into reality with the help of science?

    The real question is, did the writer of an old scifi book influence what is now, or did they both create similar things because its the right way to do it. Its a similar question as to wether or not we have "ethics" because we know what is right or because we've been told what right and wrong are

    Whenever you think something it comes into being one way or another. By thinking you are impacting all reality more than we have the ability to currently understand.

    13:08 – Microsoft had nothing to do with voice/video communications. On the contrary, Microsoft (or at least Bill Gates) at that time thought Internet was negligible. All intelligence here was in 3rd party software and later incorporated in M$ software.

    This confirms that conceptualization precede creation

  • BlueFieldGamer on December 27, 2019

    The Flying car is a good idea but the way it showed in science fiction movie and tv is inaccurate

    Flying car would be the same as a light aircrafts

    You would fly it from a airport and you has to have a pilot license

    You cant have lot of car flying around a city that too dangerous and most people's cant drive

  • preeti nagpuria on December 28, 2019

    yep tablets were in the original star trek show. That was why way back then I wanted one but it hasn't been invented. The other thing I wanted in those days that wasn't even invented yet was a self driving car.
