There’s a Star Trek uniform in my past. There’s a Star Trek club back there too. I’m not proud of either of them, but they do serve to remind me that there’s wasting my time and then there’s REALLY wasting my time. While I’m not as much of a Trek fan as I was in my early teens, I still enjoy the show in small doses. More importantly, I appreciate what the show stood for, and how many of today’s best and brightest were inspired by it.
If you head on over to Techopedia, you’ll find a feature I recently pulled together on six technologies featured on Star Trek that inspired some of the real world hardware that we take for granted today.
