2001 A SPACE ODYSSEY FINALLY COMES TRUE
There is one thing from the movie that has happened.* The notebook, or "pad" computer is a reality. In the movie you can see the astronauts watching a news program via "streaming video" on their pads. At the time the idea was super cool. It still is. I got one recently and I can't log onto the internet or watch a video without feeling some of that old Space Odyssey coolness.
(* Okay, I'll grant you that bland, prefab food has also come true)
