Good stuff, Scott.

On note on #6: Augmented reality has been around for decades. Just ask any of us who were around in the 60's.

Don't think we'll live to see it, but maybe our kids  :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

Wouldn't it be great if we all just stopped trying to kill each other and spent the same money trying to get off this dying planet and find another one to wreck?   :fool:

It will launch from Bozeman, Montana on April 5th, 2063. (And I'll bet that I'm not the only one here who knows that.  ;)   )

I agree Scotty :good: why can't we all just get
along.Wouldn't it be nice if countries didn't need
weapons and fighting men and spent the money to
help the citizens of the world instead.

Why do I feel that this article was written to scare you, instead of celebrating progression of science  :DntKnw:
