What Does The Future Of Travel Look Like?

I often dream about the day when we can fly like George Jetson to work or some sort of Star Trek scenario where Scotty can beam us up and down.

We’re not at that point yet but we have reached a moment in time where people like my great-grandparents who watched horse and buggy evolve into cars would be amazed.

You can start your day in one part of the world and finish it ten thousand miles away. Crossing oceans is still an adventure but not in the way they knew it.

From a marketing and advertising standpoint I see all sorts of interesting ways to connect with travelers. The opportunity to speak to individuals as well as groups exists in a way it never did.

Simply fascinating to think about the possibilities and yet part of me wonders what sort of role privacy might play in these future communications because when you update an app, agree to receive text messages or share information about yourself you give marketers all sorts of interesting nuggets to review.

Still I am very interested to see what the future holds. Will we reach a moment in my lifetime when you can fly from the United States to China in an hour?

Who knows, but it sure is fun to think about.

    Hyperloop? Thoughts? Will be faster and more convenient than air travel (all theoretically, of course).

      @disqus_6k46PvzvMT:disqus A good Hyperloop could be very cool. I am very curious to see if we find a way to turn a 10k mile trip into something that can be done in less than 15 or so hours on a commercial level.

    I don’t think transportation has changed much in a long time. The plane and plane travel have existed for a long time (relatively speaking).

      @Lardavbern:disqus The basic forms of travel have been relatively stable for a while but if you break that time up into pieces we see some significant advances in speed, safety and other features. Who knows what will happen in the next 20 years or so.
