The Nintendo Entertainment System of the mid-1980s was a great home console, and 2016's miniaturised NES Classic Edition is a wonderful reimagining. You can buy one, too, as a Christmas present for yourself or your friends -- after the first shipment sold out entirely, a second lot, likely the last for the year, is due in early December.

But you'll have to pre-order if you want one; the Classic Mini NES is going to be extremely hard to come by.

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.
