Technology is advancing at a very rapid rate. Everyday we are introduced to new gadgets that are supposed to make our life a lot easier. I remember going to an office supply store with my father and my son to get a graphing calculator. My father told my son, when he was a young boy office supply stores did not exist because nothing in them had been invented yet. He used to dip Mary’s braided hair in his ink pot at school. He may have embellished a little: but what a long way we have come just in my life time. Below are some futuristic furnishings that are a reality today.
