"From robot pocket cat children's shows to battling it out on Mars with the Judeo-Christian god, Japan's authors and artists have looked to the future with awe, hope, nuclear world wars, horrible space aliens, and giant, highly destructive mecha (that also make for very marketable toys). It's often bleak, terrifying or just strange, but it's always awesome. Here's a timeline of what humanity has to look forward to, if the anime-masters are correct."

Printing transport. 
TE Connectivity decided to 3D-print a motorcycle in order to demonstrate the many uses of this technology. Inspired by the Harley-Davidson Softail, almost all the parts of this motorcycle were printed in 3D, with the exception of the engine, electrical components, and rear-view mirrors.

I am certain of nothing but the holiness of the heart's affections and the truth of imagination. -- John Keats
Introduction
I don't believe in ghosts...I don't believe in vampires...I don't believe in demons, angels, astrology, werewolves, JFK conspiracy theories, Feng shui, utopias, God, Satan, pyramid power, Freud, Marx, Buddha, prayer, the power of positive thinking, poltergeists, reincarnation, UFO's, Bigfoot, grapho-analysis, whole grain cereals, Jesus, Patsy Ramsey's innocence, an afterlife or...fill in the blank...I may believe in the Beatles. The jury's still out on that. But I definitely do not believe in Yoko. I am, in John Keats's words, "...certain of nothing but the holiness of the Heart's affections and the truth of Imagination." -- Dan Simmons

I write science fiction and sf criticism, among other things.
