I remember the first time….

The Mrs and I went to Pei Wei, we walked in and they had changed the menus. As you wait to get to the counters you stand next to these large printed menus and can pick what you want. That’s how we did it in the past.

Now they have Animated Menus.

Yes, it was just an LCD screen with a program running on it that showed the menu. But the first time birds flew in an grabbed a picture of a Thai Bowl and carried it away so it could be replaced by a plate of Hot and Spicy, I knew I lived in some science fiction world.

There are no flying cars, but there are many things that were the stuff of SciFi when I was a kid. I’m going to chronicle them in the new We Live In The Future category here on the blog.
