Ah the 1960’s when we all had the freedom to think, free speech, to be inventive and bring dreams toward a brighter future. it seems a century away, so long ago, (it really is a century away) when the 21st Century was a bright beacon. Cartoon’s like The Jetson’s and Johnny Quest highlighted such grand ideas. Well, it can be stated that didn’t quite turn out the way many of us thought it would, not with the terrorists now in America being welcomed by the Democratic Party per say. That said, a few days ago I touched on one 21st Century technology essentially realistic women and men sexdolls and now sexbots aka. sex robots. Shades of the mid 70’s sci-fi “West World” and a robot hooker in a saloon, it seems this has come to pass.
Another thing that is actually happening are personal flying vehicles, shades of the cartoon Jetson’s and other flicks of the past. Flying cars, flying bikes all becoming a reality as the 21st Century is truly taking hold. I wanted to touch on this because like the first “X” rated technology, this will also influence and change society and is deserving of a major blog post here. So first and foremost let us watch some of these flying vehicles in action.
While American car companies are selling the latest road machines, look what the Chinese are getting ready to sell.
and not to be forgotten are motorcycle riders or dare I say fliers.
You watched em, they all fly you to where you want to go, and now here comes the cans of fresh worms. First and foremost these types of vehicles will greatly reduce traffic congestion. Sadly, there will be flying accidents and depending on what the victims were flying in and what it was equipped with, this will certainly determine who walks away and who gets 6 feet of dirt on em. Then there is the job market. Eventually all these flying vehicles will drop substantially in price and batteries will extend range beyond anything anyone had ever imagined. So who gets hurt? Well before we get you to the who let us take a look at a long traditional gasoline powered industry.
So now let us talk about this. Because airplanes and helicopters are going to become much more rare as the giant drones for a lack of a better description, whisk people away. So jobs in traditional aircraft as well especially ground based motorcycles and cars are going to either switch to this new flight technology or rapidly go the way of the horse and buggy.
Further, governments will find relief in that they will not have to maintain roads like they used to, because most people will be up top going from place to place. Supposedly the FAA has been working on plans for all of this in the USA, like they got a border wall nailed to protect the country’s border, and thus is another headache for them. These drones as they develop big ones to carry passengers will easily hop a border wall, not that I’m against building one and fixing immigration, but that is another hot blog topic for another time. So the new form of transportation will definitely present new challenges, industries while killing off older industries. It will certainly be quite interesting indeed to see the sky chases rather then on the ground. One thing that will become safe are animals. With so many animals and pedestrians killed by cars, with reduced road traffic, these statistics will show more people and animals alive. However, drunken fliers will certainly pose a brand new danger and then there is the criminal element.
For example terrorists. Let’s say they load a full sized remote controlled ehang with explosives and send it to visit floor 55 with guests watching from the tall windy terrace as it hovers nearby and then goes BOOM! Worse yet a mini-nuke. Football stadium game. Yes, the future is both grand and dark, much like today’s politics.
