Let's think about something more . . . let's say not-that-sad . . . What about cars?
I own a Dacia Logan 1.4 mid version . . . i think it's a good car: low fuel consumption (55 mpg or around 5 l/100 km ), its a family car, the perfect car for an average man like me. Of course, I always dreamed about an BMW, Mercedes . . . but maybe in the future there will be way better cars . . .
Recently some companies design hybrid cars (with an electric engine for low speeds and a diesel/otto engine for higher speeds) , cars that work with hydrogen, bioethanol, methane and even water ! ! ! Toyota and Opel, they are concerned because the lowering source of oil and the lack of resources, built cars that work completely on electricity, NO OIL = NO POLLUTION, so this type of cars may be the future cars. Of course, both producers have cars wit HUGE engines and HUGE emissions of CO2 . . .
The cars are starting to get smarter and smarter: they brake automatically if they encounter an obstacle at low range, cruise control option, TCU (traction control unit) even autopilot ! ! ! It seems amazing that a car can get you home in perfect safety, on the trip play your favorite song or movie, let you play video games or even surf the internet . . . etc. It's how many things man can do . . . if it wants . . . That's the main problem, man kind (or at least some of them) doesn't want all people to have a place to live in, something to eat, somewhere to sleep . . . Only the luckiest ones get a decent life . . . OMG I'm getting to think negative again :D
Anyway, the future cars will be totally different of what we know these days . . . the accidents will be avoided or at least reduced drastically, no more fuel required, no driver required, it could be like a second home :D . If we continue like that the cars will be the most advanced piece of engineering in the world . . .
