Fun Fact Friday: The Fun is Relative

One of the movies set in 2019 was none other than Blade Runner.  The future portrayed was not quite as bleak as many of today’s dystopian predictions of the future but neither was it a paradise.  One of the best things about it was that there were beings called Replicants.  Much like the premise of iRobot, several of these engineered humanoids rise up against their human creators.  Though the AI V.I.K.I. did it out of her belief that she was protecting humanity from themselves, the replicants do so out of a desire to survive.

We haven’t made the technological strides promised to us back in the 80’s, but maybe it’s better that Blade Runner’s predicted future doesn’t come to pass.

The fashion in that movie was questionable at best.

Bye for now!
