While vacations are important for multiple reasons, the process of traveling has become more frustrating. Highways are usually congested, public transportation is expensive and often delayed, and the risk of personal injury/illness is higher than ever. I can hardly imagine how unpleasant it would have been for me to fly overseas to cruise on that quarantined ship.
In my opinion, one of the biggest challenges for the next generation is finding a way to improve how we travel. It should be convenient, safe, fast and inexpensive. Somehow I dream about Star Trek’s transporter being the answer, but that might have to wait. So I hope our innovators can whip something up soon.
