Future Tense?

A new study from the Pew Research Center paints a picture of Americans looking to the future for made-to-order human organs, robotic elder care, and things of that nature - and we are largely positive about what the coming years and decades may bring us. However, a good chunk of respondents - about 30% - are a bit less sanguine and worry about drones, computers implants and the like.
On the positive side, the telephone survey of 1,001 adult Americans in February showed that 81% expect that within the next 50 years people who need new organs, whether it's a liver, kidney or heart, will have them custom grown in a lab. And 51% said they expect computers will be able to create art that is so good it will be indistinguishable from art produced by humans.
