Yummy Technology

So, it's pretty obvious that we're in the midst of a technological revolution that's spiraling upwards into a bizarre world in which pretty much anything you can imagine will be possible. You're going to be able to take a virtual vacation like Arnold did in Total Recall, but hopefully they'll work out the kinks lest you be lobotomized.

And sooner even than that, you're going to be able to taste food through electrodes placed on your tongue. You could actually try the food at a new restaurant before setting foot in it. And you will be able to make broccoli and Brussels sprouts taste like chocolate cake (though I'd take the former two veggies over the latter dessert).
