When ever I see a SiFi type movie about the future, and in it there is a way to track, locate, and ID people by way of something like micro chips under the skin, bar code tattoo's and etc... my FIRST thought when watching the movie, is I can see this possibly becoming true in the REAL world. Not that I would want it to... but you know the old saying how "life imitates art" well think about it... There are, and were a lot of movies made years, and years ago that had "future" type things in them, and NOW those things that were only in the movies, have now become a reality. Star Track is the best example of this. That show, and I am talking about the old ones from TV, they had things on the ship that were not invented yet, for example like the "doors that open automatically when someone walks up to them" those were NOT a reality when they made the show, it was just a "futuristic" idea in someones head, and now... NOW those doors are everywhere, and they are reality. But movies like Demolition man... that is the movie that freaks me out the most, the thought that one day our society might really be run like that. Ok another example, I just watched a movie recently, I can't remember the name now, but in that movie they had "drones" in the sky, that helped the police catch and track people. The movie was set for a few years in the future I think, but anyway these "drones" saw and captured everything onto a network run by the government. There have been other movies in the past that have used this same idea of "drones" flying over our cities, gathering, tracking, monitoring, and etc... everyone for the police or government. Now my point in saying this, IS, I just read in the news paper last week, about how NY is wanting to try using DRONES, to help police. So this is now becoming a REAL possibility. If you remember, and I believe I am remembering it right too... drones were used in the movie demolition man, to help keep track of when someone did something wrong. Makes you think... what it might be like to have hundreds of tiny machines flying around in the sky, recording your every action, where you go, what you do, who you talk to, and etc... and then reporting, recording, and storing this all in a data base somewhere to be used later.
