With New Year's resolutions still fresh in everyone's minds, Peloton announced its second major product on Tuesday: A treadmill. Except, as Peloton CEO John Foley explained to me at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the new Peloton Tread is more than a running machine. It's being billed as a private fitness studio, one that offers the ability to take a variety of exercise classes streamed live from the company's studios in Manhattan. It will also set you back four grand, plus a monthly fee of $US39 if you want access to the live classes. The craziest detail of all? It almost feels worth it.

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.
