Humans have evolved from primitive hunter-gatherers to the ‘advanced’ beings that we are today. While some might have expected more from the human race, in the grand scheme of things the modern homo sapien has only been on the face of this planet for a short amount of time. In that time span, one can make a legitimate argument that humans have harmed the planet just as much as they have progressed the human race. With drones flying in the sky, and self-driving cars and now with Elon Musk’s proposed Hyperloop, we are truly living in the future.

We get to live in a time and place where we have the use of currency rather than the bartering system.

You know you live in the future when you don’t have to worry about your bicycle tires popping anymore. These tires are designed with holes in them so that they will never be punctured or ruptured. An ingenious, creative, and economically friendly design!
This might be a mix of future and retro all in one. Apparently, this new home was built with a Super Nintendo console as part of the wall. Maybe it was meant as a form of decor? Or maybe it just fell into the mix of mortar?
We live in an age of electronics where almost everything is controlled by computers. Most cars nowadays have a computer within them, and almost every cell phone nowadays is a miniature computer. So given all this technology, this is really the only way to propose to your gamer girlfriend.
Did you really go to Disneyland if you didn’t show it to your social media? Were you really there having fun if you can’t show your friends and followers you were having fun? I guess Disneyland doesn’t care so much about your social media following, or how many likes and retweets you get.

Not only do we live in a day and age where we have Star Wars, but we also live in a timeline where we can dress up as any character from any movie that we like, like with cosplay. So what better way to ride the subway than in a Stormtrooper outfit all the while knitting?
With smartphones, and smart televisions and computers that have always been smart, it should be no surprise that we have smart elevators now. This elevator is able to tell riders how many more people can fit in until they reach capacity.
As mentioned earlier, you can make a fair argument that as much as we have benefited from technology, technology has also greatly harmed the earth. That’s why it is important to continue to grow while maintaining the integrity of this planet. It all starts with simple inventions such as the eco stapler. It doesn’t use staples, it simply binds the paper together!

With metal detectors getting better and better nowadays, it is no surprise that humans are uncovering more and more buried treasure. Whoever lost their purse hundreds and hundreds of years ago, apparently, it was found today by some researchers.
