Selling Scifi

Your local electronics store has just started selling time machines, anywhere doors, and invisibility helmets. You can only afford one. Which of these do you buy, and why?

Wow, we are hitting futuristic science fiction territory here people. Let’s see now – time machine, anywhere doors and invisibility helmets! So like Back To the Future / Star Trek IV, The Librarians and The Invisible Man. Hmmm, tough choice.

Now I know I would love to be able to turn invisible and go and visit…..ahem…..err, political and big business decision making that goes on behind closed doors (yeah, right). Or just be able to blend in and not have people notice me. What about a door that can let you get to anywhere you want in the world. That would come in handy. No more commuting. No traffic blocks and you end up saving on the money it takes to get places. Hmmm! Interesting and very tempting.

And time machines? I have always been fascinated by time machines, ever since as a little boy I watched the 1960 film Time Machine based on the story by H G Wells. To see fascinating periods throughout history and go and see the dinosaurs and all those amazing stuff. And go and check out what the future will look like too. How much will we advance in 500 years or a 1000 or 5,000 years from now? I think I will pick the time machine.
