Future tech? America’s not so sure

A new Pew study on “science in the next 50 years” suggests that while Americans are favorably disposed to future technology in the abstract, they’re less certain about actually bringing tomorrow’s tech into their houses and their daily lives.
The questions posed to 1,001 adults in the US ran the gamut of popular science fiction notions, from time travel and teleportation to space colonies and robot helpmates. They also touched on technologies that are in the thick of today’s on-the-cusp high-tech efforts, including driverless cars, personal and commercial drone aircraft, and wearable computing devices.
