It's been said that the pterosaur, which can only be described as a bird-reptile-dinosaur-esque-thing, was the largest flying animal. This giant beast -- which roamed the Earth during the Cretaceous period roughly 66.5 million years ago -- was a reptile but not actually a dinosaur. Despite being winged, it wasn't bird, either. The pterosaur basically looked like a platypus on bath salts.

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.
