Being an avid reader/writer of cool science fiction stories, admiring traveling and having very little money most of the time could very well be used to describe some of my traits. I know I sound like a broke geek with the above description but I assure you I have a lot of other non-geeky qualities and likes, such as;….errr…..hmmm…..well….fantasizing about historical events.
Ok, now you can see how my traits and time traveling meet up at a common point. Here’s why I can’t seem to keep myself away from thinking or writing about it:
- I’ve always been a time-traveller, right from my birth to my current age. Although, I’ve only managed to travel forward in time in this period, it’s still a thing I’ve been doing so well for so long. And guess what? You’re just like me! (unless you are Benjamin Button)
- There are endless possibilities in time travel and a whole, massive history of interesting times and events you can visit. You can run along dinosaurs, be on the Titanic when it sank, witness your grandpa hitting on your grannie or simply watch a good football match that you’ve missed,…live….
- Paradoxes! Who doesn’t love a good time-travel paradox? Imagine, what would happen if you went back in time and shot Hitler before he rose into power? Hmmm…since you changed history by killing him, he wouldn’t have risen to power and we wouldn’t have heard about him in our time in the first place so that you couldn’t have gone back in time to kill him….Nice, right? What if you accidentally killed one of your ancestors? It’s good thought practice. Isn’t it?
- You can read or write without paying attention to grammar as the statement “I’ll see you yesterday” would still be technically correct.
- Believe me, there is always a good story in time travel. and tragedy. and mystery. and humor. and… every kind of emotion that you want to experience.
- The best thing is that when you (read or write about) time travel, you won’t be spending a single penny. It’s indeed the cheapest way of vagabonding.
Can’t time-travel? Then, live your life to the fullest, make excellent memories, make love, take selfies (not necessarily in that order) and revisit your memories, thinking about all when you get older.
By the summer of 2019, you won’t need long, monkey-like arms or metal rods to take good selfies.The Selpheres, which will be in the form of mini death stars, will float around and take snapshots of you, for you. They will be programmable and will have a direct link to your smart phone, sending the best shots for you to choose from. All you will have to do is put on your best smile and look at the bashed-in spot on the sphere, where the camera lens is located.
A year later, an upgraded version Selphere S (free software upgrade with proof of purchase) will be on the market, which will be capable of 3D photo rendering, video shooting and adding cheesy frames around your photos.Moreover, upon enabling the “duck face” or “fish gape” functions, selfie lovers won’t have to pose like their favorite cute creatures. The changes will be automatically applied to the pics, preventing the need for a plastic surgeon’s scalpel in the future, for having done so many face twists when taking selfies.

By 2027, eye implants in the form of lenses, featuring filters (like Instagram) will be quite possible and popular especially amongst social media addicts. The early lenses will only have eight inter-switchable filters and tints, allowing the viewer to enjoy a scene in various forms. More advanced versions of the lens, which will be available the following year, will have additional modes; like the night-view or the kaleidoscope feature, enabling implanted people seeing the world as never seen before.
