Within five years, do you think your job will be made redundant by a robot? If you answered yes, you are in the 16 per cent of Aussies that fear your role will be stolen by our robot overlords.

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.

There's nothing better about living in the 21st Century than the ability to order, pay for and arrange delivery of food from the comfort of our own homes. Thanks to the internet, we don't even have to talk to anyone to do it.
