Behold! The World of Tomorrow!

LCD Money, perfect for reprogramming into larger denominations! The spiritual successor to the hoverboards from Back to the Future 2! DVD Players that fold like origami! This list of futuristic gizmos certainly brings out the uncynical consumer in us for a change.

In the future, you will be able to leave your beer in a car on a hot summer day, sure that the beer can’s futuristic refrigeration mechanism has kept your brew frosty. Had a few too many of those? Make your way to the nearest urinal and direct your golden stream at an embedded video game screen — direct your canisters full of liquid napalm at the zombies before they can advance upon your crotch!
