The Future has arrived


Transparent aluminum is a real thing.  See?  http://phys.org/news167925273.html  It remains to be seen just how involved Dr. Nichols and Plexicorp were in the development.

Cloaking devices?  Old hat.  http://www.howstuffworks.com/invisibility-cloak.htm  Soon every convenience store will sell them.

Remote brain control?  Been there, done that, burned the T-shirt.  http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/165081-first-human-brain-to-brain-interface-allows-remote-control-over-the-internet-telepathy-coming-soon

All this, and more, and we as a species, heck, we as a COUNTRY, can’t get together enough to solve the big problems.  The advances are there.  Climate change?  Big problem, economically and biologically, not to mention the history lost when centuries of ice melt away.  But instead of tackling problems like that and other big ones, feeding the hungry, advancing the society, what do we pay attention to?  How much attention was given to the likes of Miley Cyrus or some other entertainer that could be given to someone who actually makes a difference?
