In the 1977 book, Ender’s game, the famous book by Orson Scott Card, everyone is hooked up to the NETS, Space travel is casual, and Ender plays 3D computer games on his pad. These are all different businesses in todays’ day and age.
Isaac Asimov is renowned as one of the greatest Science Fiction writers of all time with the creation of the three rules for artificial intelligence in I-Robot, published in 1950. Today, artificial intelligence has become the hottest computing platform.
In Star Trek, their space travel is based on different energy sources and their currency is based on a “credit” system that is definitely not based on paper dollars. If you think that Star Trek transactions weren’t happening on a distributed ledger called Bitcoin, then you are delusional.
Camera’s capture the world through “telescreens” in 1984, published in 1949. George Orwell was expecting the government or centralized group to have this power, not Snapchat… but still very relevant.
Science Fiction is constantly ahead of the curve, and by pushing the imagination, they inspire creation. Entrepreneurs and creators everywhere get to imagine how to shape the future.
