When I was 11 years old, I went to the football (AFL, or VFL as it was in those days) with my Dad. He was a Carlton supporter and I barracked for Hawthorn. That meant we'd go to games at Princes Park, which was the home ground for both teams in the 1970s. But when I kept asking my Dad to read the scoreboard to me it was time to get my eyes checked. After almost four decades of wearing glasses every day since then, I've decided to give contact lenses a go.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
