Not just making phone calls wherever you want, but all the additional tools apps make possible on an iPhone or Android, whether it’s playing music, games, using as a visual translator and so much more, the smartphone far surpasses any concept presented in a cheesy 1960s sci-fi drama such as Star Trek. Their devices seem ancient, even in their 24th century context. I’m sure I’m incapable of imagining what we’ll have in our hands 20 years from today.
