Seems like half the technology foreseen by Cameron was already out and available before the movie was!

Especially if you look at what has come to be since 1998.

I think like all good SciFi, it'll serve to inspire the future. Much we won't attain, but other things will far surpass the fiction much faster than predicted.

For example; other than the clear glass screen (which is cool, by the way). Tablets available to the consumer are already capable of much more than was shown of the tablets in Avatar. Yes, even in auto-stereoscopic 3D.

- Mikko ... uses the "Tricorder" app on his phone regularly, for real life tasks.
