We may not be living in the personal jet packs and flying cars future sci-fi made us dream about, but our 21st century world is pretty futuristic.
Or maybe we should start referring to the the world we live in , and the tech we've integrated into our lives, as modernistic, because the future is now.
We've got prosthetic hands that can be 3D printed and built in less than 48 hours, hundreds of gigabytes of memory in our tiny SD cards, and one little smartphone replaced eight different devices.
And speaking of that most futuristic form of reproduction 3D printing we can now use a pen to "print" a 3D "drawing", we can print out chocolate in any shape we want, and we can create the ultimate birthing memento- a 3D print of your unborn child.
If that ain't futuristic I don't know what is!
