More and More like Star Trek

Have you ever noticed with the advances in technology and the Internet our life is becoming more and more like Star Trek? Granted, we don’t have things like transporters, yet, but I’m able to visit my mother in San Diego while sitting in my house in Scottsdale. She sits at her dining table with her laptop computer and WebCam and I sit at my desktop computer and WebCam in Scottsdale. We hear and see each other as if we were in the same room.

If you think about it, with something like a web conferencing service, you could interact with people all around the world. In some ways it’s almost like a transporter unit. You’re sitting in your location and they are in their locations on the opposite ends of the earth. It’s amazing!
