  1. This was a great interview. Dr. Kaku is entertaining and informative as usual.

    That little bit about the contact lenses being developed reminds me of the technology in Vernor Vinge’s Rainbow’s End.

    The stuff about quantum teleportation and destroying atoms to teleport them reminded me of the story “Think like a Dinosaur”

    Science Fiction becoming reality!

    Not sure about the flying cars, though. Sorry, John, I disagree with the good professor. I don’t think those are coming anytime soon.  Not until cars are completely and utterly automated…

     

  2. 2100?  The singularity will hit in 2040.  [Editor: Personal attack deleted] :p

  3. The whole toilet discussion sparked a train of thought for me that lead to the highly esteemed Dr. Toilet, from Scrubs.

    And, of course the classic ditty, Everything Comes Down To Poo.

    Who says science is dull?
