I guess you'd call this a "tech" link, but I'm always so interested in what's next in hi tech evolution. Long ago I kept saying one day we'd be hanging our tv on the wall like a painting and people just "humored me" lol.
We're all familiar with "smart phones", no matter if we have one or not. Smart TV couldn't be far behind, could it? The end result is bound to be a blending of all our technology into one application.
Any avid reader of Sci-Fi has always known that one day we'd have just one Console where we link up do to everthing! It will be phone/communications/tv/internet - who knows? Maybe you'll be having consults with Doctors and nurses, interior decorating stores, plant nurseries, etc. and live your typical day from the console in your living room!
Of course, the tech advance I'm really waiting for is the Transporter Closet. There will be one in every home! Key in your co-ordinates, step in and close the door and Beam Me UP Scottie! You open the door again and find yourself having dinner in Paris, or giving your grandkids in another state a real hug.
Since those Star Trek days, I've always thought that while you're transporting and re-arranging atoms, why not leave a few pounds of that belly fat behind instead of reassembling ALL of it upon arrival! LOL.
Ok, now you know how my mind REALLY works!
Of course, nothing will ever replace a walk in fresh air or some real sweat and the good feeling you get from healthy eating!
