It was 4am, and the headband strapped to my skull woke me up chanting a series of words. "Christmas. Soup. Pasture. Eternal." It was part of a cognitive exercise that was supposed to distract my brain. The purpose of this babel was to give me peace of mind to help me fall asleep, but instead, it woke me up three hours before my alarm. I double tapped my head, silencing the voice, tore the device off, and shoved it in my nightstand. That morning my phone would ask me why it stopped collecting my sleep data so soon.

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.
