Since it is now the year 2010, it is officially the future:
- We can carry a whole video store's worth of movies in our pockets
- We use lasers to fix people's bad eyesight
- We have video phones thanks to the internet
- Machines in space can tell us where we are and how to get where we're going

PS - There are other examples, I'm sure.
PPS - Happy new year!
