Star Trek lives in new devices

Been really busy this week, and although posting has been on my mind, I just couldn't get to it. Fortunately, there's been plenty of cool stuff going on web- and world-wise, so now I'll take the time to dish it up.

First off, it's pretty cool and obvious, if I must say so, how science fiction influences our daily life and how things that were thought up decades ago eventually (way too slow for my tastes) come into being. Case in point: take a look at some Star Trek paraphanelia and the real-life products that bear an uncanny resemblance to them. The cell phone is the most obvious; the captain's chair... not really a dead ringer if you ask me. Thanks for trying though.

While I'm on the subject of Star Trek itself, check out this collection of links. Seems like there's a bit of a resurgance in this franchise. Phasers on stun, people.
