Video: As Alfred pointed out in The Dark Knight, some men just like to watch the world burn. To them, a day at the beach spent lounging in the sun isn't particularly enjoyable. But a day at the beach spent terrorising swimmers with this amazing animatronic shark suit? Now that's an afternoon well spent.

For $US35 ($47) ThinkGeek will now sell you an animatronic cat tail, powered by four AA batteries, that will contentedly swish back and forth as it hangs from the back of your pants. You can pretend you're buying it for cosplay reasons, or maybe for a Halloween costume, but deep down you know it's really your first tentative step towards becoming a furry.

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.
