Perpetual Motion DeviceThis week we're predicting.

Game:  There are 5 random words below.  Use two of them in a prediction about a technology that may become a reality in the future.  The more out there the better.

  • synthetic
  • courage
  • seesaw
  • comet
  • butter

Challenge:  There is no challenge this week.

Strategy: Science fiction writers have often had fun conjuring fantastic technologies as either the basis for an intriguing plot (such as a time machine for instance) or to support one by introducing novel effects.  Stories are such a compelling way to influence people though and so inevitably these stories have an influence on scientists and engineers and where they would like to explore and create.  These stories that predict the future, in a way, play a strong part in actually creating the future.  Creativity can influence the world around us in so many ways.  Todays game is an exercise in doing just that.  So let your mind run wild and see what you can predict.  Have fun!
