My buddies at SFSignal pointed me towards this Top 10 list of sci-fi tropes and technologies that will never come true.

faster than light (ftl) travel, resurrection of dinosaurs, the cure pill etc are just some sci-fi ideas which could quite possibly be achieved in reality. however, we have long predicted the possibility of flying cars… but where are they today?
in any case, this is a little thought provoking article which gives us a bit of foresight on some of the future technologies we want to keep our eyes on today.
