Still no sign of affordable personal jetpacks


Middle aged geeks are anticipating another year of broken promises, as the mediocre reality that is 2014 falls short of our vision of cloud cities, robot butlers and cheese in a can. In the absence of enormous slabs of black granite telling us what to do, mankind has disappointingly focused its scientific energies on a cure for listless hair and the invention of the Slanket. The closest thing to science fiction we have come to has been US banking regulations and James Corden's popularity.


Complained one sad Sci-Fi fan: ‘I’m forced to make my own light sabre noises while wielding vacuum attachments and do a ‘woooosh’ whenever I see an automatic door’.
