Here are four stories of the possible (maybe not probable) future, told in Bernfeld's inimitable style and understated humor. He seems to have not only asked that basic question of fiction, "what if...," but also the more important "what could possibly go wrong?" The cynical answer to the second, of course, is just about everything. Subject matter includes artificial intelligence, computer chips in the brain, forced genetic modification, and the less-glamorous aspects of space travel. Read it and chuckle.

Technology. Wonderful hi tec/nu tec toys, How did we ever manage without all the stuff that we have now? And there’s more to come, much more. It makes life so much simpler whilst making it so much more complex.

How would you deal with Artificial Intelligence (AI) if it was installed in a sulking washing machine?

Teleportation sounds a great way to get around—no more queues at airports and hours spent in the cramped, germ-ridden environment that is modern airline travel. Might there be a downside, though? What if your body becomes a 3D printed copy of the original and something goes wrong during the copying process?

Manned space exploration is romantic, heroic and maybe even necessary for human survival, but with an AI unit in charge of the mission, what would the role of the human crew members actually be?

Electric vehicles may be the future of surface transportation. Does this mean that the traditional gun firing, tyre squealing cops and robbers car chase is a thing of the past?

Author Peter N Bernfeld takes a quirky look at technology both on the drawing boards and imagined but yet- to -be invented, and discovers some hidden snags that nobody seems to have thought of.
