What My Boo Isaac Asimov Thought 2014 Would Be

What will the World’s Fair of 2014 be like? I don’t know, but I can guess. One thought that occurs to me is that men will continue to withdraw from nature in order to create an environment that will suit them better. By 2014, electroluminescent panels will be in common use. Ceilings and walls will glow softly, and in a variety of colors that will change at the touch of a push button.

Robots will neither be common nor very good in 2014, but they will be in existence.

I’m jumping back into the game with this post. Happy New Year!
