Movies set in 2019:
- Blade Runner
- The Running Man
As well as the undeservedly less well known Italian movie, “2019 - Dopo la caduta di New York”.
As the 21st century approached and technology was staying the same, I realized that sci fi creators overestimated the advance of human tech, and should've pumped up their years by at least 100.
I was actually referring to the practically nil advance of technology in the following fields:
* Laser guns
* Flying cars
* Holographic displays
* Space exploration
* Artificial Intelligence
Even modern AI is super specific and requires massive amounts of computing resources - 1/2
@starbreaker And even then it fails miserably, like AIs confusing images with captions in IMPACT font with cats
What a disappointment
On a funnier note, there's a subreddit dedicated to the lack of cool stuff in our crappy world: r/ABoringDystopia. Go figure. - 2/2
