Once again Star Trek leads us into the future.


Tomi T Ahonen

Hi Edward

Yes, I've written about the Star Trek influence in my books already, and we have quite a lot in the mobile telecoms space - the Motorola flip phones were strongly influenced by the original Star Trek communicators, the original Tri-Corder is not far from today's PDA, the Communicator badges of Next Generation are similar in ability to the handsfree operation of mobile phones; etc.

There also are many other relevant visions of the future in Star Trek that we have already seen, such as the flat screen touch-screens that seemed so futuristic in Next Generation, that are now commonplace on any Notebooks, PDAs and Tablets. What I'd love to see is the teleporter and there are some scientists working at that kind of technologies.

Ha-ha, I guess I revealed the severely techno-nerdy Trekkie and Trekker side of myself... Thanks for visiting our blogsite. Come back again !
