Beam Me Up, Carter

| Related | September 6, 2013

(My adult daughter and I are discussing technology in general and 3D printers in particular. The conversation turns to replicator technology.)

Daughter: “Well, we have had nanotech for quite a while, so replicators can’t be far off.”

Me: “What does nanotech have to do with replicators? We need transporter technology before we can have replicators.”

Daughter: “What are you talking about? Replicators are basically nanobots. Like on Stargate.”

Me: “Oh, no. I was talking about replicators like on Star Trek. You know, for food and stuff.”

Daughter: “Oh my God! We are such Geeks! Dad would be so proud!”
