    Actually, this isn't all that unbelievable. All of this is possible at the moment, but is far too expensive to implement. Besides, with all the glass there would be vandalism all over the place.

    I'd say that this would be a realistic goal for 2020, but it won't be until at least 2030 that we see it this way.

    Maybe something similar, not that far as show, but could be possible.

    But seriously how much tv places do you need? [​IMG]

    Look pretty cool tho...

    I hope they wouldn't try to get rid of the majority of buttons all together. :/

    I thought we were supposed to have flying cars and meals-in-a-pill by 2000....?

    Take these "predictions" with a grain of salt, nobody knows what the future looks like.

    this annoyed me, because it can be done now. but this would burn up a TON of energy. the way we generate energy now would not be enough for most people to live in this manner. i run crazy electronics and my apt is heated with electric, bill in winter is around 110-150 and i keep it pretty cold. i imagine the bill would triple if all these devices were implemented.

    Good God, is there any place in the 2020 home that doesn't have a bloody computer? Must we have an iPOD touch plastered to everything we can see? Man, that's scary if you ask me. It would be cool to play Mario on a dinner mat though, lol.

    You guys can wish our world would be anything NEAR that by 2020.
    Imagine how slimy and dirty all those glass walls would be, with people sneezing on them and crap xD

    I'd love to go back in time and give that poor old man a DS (from 2004) and watch him have a heart attack. The DS is probably a 1000 times more powerful than the monster behind him (although it lacks a steering wheel [​IMG] ).

    Some of it could really be true, I have no doubt the most high tech buildings in the world be like that.
    It's really possible, but like it's have already been said here, it would get very dirty and scratched pretty soon.
    Especially that part with the bus part, that would just get smudged very bad.

    It wouldn't get smudged, oh no, it would be smashed on the ground in smitherenes. And also it would be great if I could put my see-through phone on a bench and have it full screen.
