Are We Living In The Age Of The Jetsons? ⚙️

in StemSocial8 months ago

Who remembers the Hanna-Barbera Productions animated sitcom The Jetsons? I sure do and it's come up a couple of times in conversations here on Hive, which also got me thinking how the current generation of kids would receive this animated show. Especially, knowing the technical progress humanity has made since the cartoon first aired in 1962.

I can remember watching this animated series and waiting for the day we could communicate via a screen with others, travel in those aerocars and have a robot that keeps our homes tidy and neat. And then there's R.U.D.I. (Referential Universal Digital/Differential Indexer) - George Jetsons sentient free thinking work computer - that I didn't care much for then and not so much now.

Let me elaborate, I am grateful for having an enormous amount of information at my fingertips right now, but I don't remember me ever using an intelligent virtual assistant (IVA) from Apple or Google. Then again, with the technical advancements in artificial intelligence (AI), I might have another take on it in the future. For now I'll make use of the search bars and I'm aware that those IVA's are a huge help for those with a disability or for those who need help in organizing their professional and private lives.

We've also had quite some options in keeping in touch with others for some years now, so that can be checked off. We can only built further upon the technology. And then there's the aerocar. I haven't seen much of such a transport device in my information "feed", but that could be because I wasn't looking for it. The closest I've come is the commercially available personal electric aerial vehicle named Jetson by a Swedish company.

And should I mention if we already have a Rosie - the Jetson's housekeeping robot - or not? Well, there are already robots available in helping people keeping their spaces clean and putting items away, like the Roomba and Readybot, but don't yet expect those to form a bond with and/or become part of the family.

Well, that's where we're at technology wise, compared to what we've seen in The Jetsons. Is there any that I might have missed and what are your thoughts about technology in the near future? Let me know in the comments below. 🤓


Chasse into the backstage! 💃

Sort:  

With every invention and commercial release we are getting further away from the Jetsons being just fiction.
A floating chair would be pretty neat though.

!WINE !PIZZA !hivebits !ALIVE

A floating chair would be pretty neat though.

Ah yes, now I see it. Would definitely be practical when cleaning.

But maybe not to stand on while cleaning. !LOL

We sort of have that now with all the face filters on our phones and in apps. Even Zoom has a way of improving and softening how we look on camera.

Ah yes... No hustle with makeup or doing ones hair or whatever...

Yup, and it keeps on improving.

Lol I loved the Jetsons as a kid, but as I got older that tech just seemed way too intrusive and creepy

The same and also The Flinstones, eventhough that era was way off from The Jetsons, it was nice to see the creativity of "uncivilized" society 😂.

But I get what you mean. A bot like Rosie was/is way too overbearing for my taste.

Muchas gracias! 😁
It was a fun experience writing about the past and the present/future of technology.

I love your article. I would love a flying car. I cannot seem to find one. But we do have the Internet which is pretty good in some ways.

I love your article.

Thank you 😊.

Oh, and hahaha the internet helps in a lot of ways to "travel" virtually and learn from the rest of the world.

I still can't believe with the flying cars that people were still in a traffic jam in The Jetsons though 😂.

!ENGAGE

Haha well it would be like how airplanes now have to fly around airports waiting to land.

The touching down and taking off on the landing strip I get, that it needs to be done in a safe way and organized. I only wonder what the rules are once in the air.

There are like air roads or not sure what they call them. But they are like routes that the planes have to go on. So, I would imagine the Jetsons cars would have to fly on designated routes in the sky.

Ah ok, I've learned something new today 😅. But it only seems logical if I really thought about it.

haha yes

There has already been too much ENGAGE today.

Apparently adding herbs to your garbage can makes it smell better.
But I don't have thyme for that rubbish.
