Speculative Technology in Sci-Fi

Sometimes it doesn't age well..




I've started watching Stein's Gate a well regarded series from 2011 that I'd never gotten around to. There's a short bit in the first episode where we learn that one of the future technologies our scientist protagonists are working on is household appliances that can be remotely operated by cellphone. 

Alas. No one went back in time and warned them about the internet of things.

That aside, I must say that, one episode in, this show has me quite effectively hooked.

1 Been trying to get back into it, I got it back in 2011 (Man, I've been doing this longer than I thought) but I keep getting distracted, and haven't finished ep 2 in either of my attempts. (And I even went so far as to track down the 25th episode the first team never released).

5 I haven't seen any of this series.  Will take a look once I get through Index/Railgun - but there's a new season of that starting next month so it might be a while.
