So This is Christmas...2050
Thursday, December 26, 2002
The BBC has an article
which takes a swing at describing what Christmas may be like in about 50 years.
Among other things, food will be prepared perfectly by robots assisting in not only cooking
but serving the food. Distant family members will be broadcast to the dining room, making it
possible to simply hang up on any antagonistic relatives. Everyone will be vegetarians,
not because they won't eat but because the turkey will be a synthesized reproduction.
Shiny new children's toys will walk about the house, holding conversations
with guests. But wait, wasn't this all already foretold in the cartoon The Jetsons?
