Re: Ruining my entertainment

I don't think "dated" is the word you're looking for. I'd go with "better product designers".

Take the camera-on-wheels with its capability of carrying two kilograms of something. A perfectly useful method of retrieving items, is it not? Well, I think the science fiction writers have realized that such a device also needs an arm which can retrieve an item so it can be carried over, which this one just doesn't have. All this brings is a tiny motorized cart with limited range. You still have to have a person on both ends to move things in to and out of the thing, and I'm also guessing this moves slower than standard walking speed. So what good is that?
