5. Poll of the Week: "By 2030, which of the following technologies will have gone the most mainstream (i.e., we would start wondering how we got along otherwise)?"

Guess the movie: And now for some fun! Can you tell what movie this is just from the audio? Go here and try it out.

  • The answer to last week's movie is: Dog Day Afternoon. We have received several responses, but no one was able to guess it.  Let's hope this week will be an easier one.
