Unless you're shelling out big bucks for business or first-class tickets, your in-flight entertainment system probably looks like something from the last decade. The monitors airlines put in the back of headrests are typically cheap, low-resolution, and have a pretty pathetic selection of content. That means you're usually better off pulling out your phone or tablet, and if the aeroplane's on-board Wi-Fi sucks too (which it probably does), you'll be limited to whatever you managed to download before you sat down.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
