9 Developments That Prove We Really Are Living In The Future

You hear about new technical developments every day, but until you see them together, it's hard to imagine how far we've come in the last few years. Jetpacks, virtual reality, body scanners, personal submarines... all those things were in the realm of science fiction only a decade ago.
Since the 80s, virtual reality has been the holy grail of video gaming and entertainment.  It has often eluded the most brilliant minds who endeavored to develop it. However, two Russian brothers recently have cracked the VR code by simply putting prospective gamers inside a giant hamster ball. The ubiquitous VR headset is equipped with gyroscopes that measure the position of the gamer’s head and swivel the view of the game accordingly. Gamers enter the ball and, thanks to the wheels on which it is mounted, are able to walk indefinitely within the virtual world just as they could in the real one.

The Moller skycar is no proof whatsoever. Since it never achieved anything more than a hover. A better example is parajet, which flew quite successfully, if a bit difficult to control, it was on a expedition from Spain to Timbuktu, it had a few incidents but at least it flew, more than could be said for the Moller, which was a large funding black hole. He eventually tried to sell of the failed prototype, and failed at that too.
