First, I’ll have to admit that I didn’t watch much of the Jetsons. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I didn’t like it, or didn’t want to, I just never had much opportunity. My family didn’t have TV when I was growing up (by choice), and when I did watch TV, it was usually Xena or something my sister watched (like Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
Still, what I remember are bright colors and lots and lots of flying cars. In fact, everything seemed to be robotocized and flying in that show. That was why, when I saw this IFLS article, I immediately thought, “It’s just like the Jetsons!”
Anyways. This is a ways away from flying cars, but it’s still pretty cool:
Switzerland Could be Receiving Post by Drone
So apparently Switzerland is cooler than we are. I mean, yeah, we have a lot more area to cover, which poses logistical issues, but this puts them WAY ahead of us. Our mail system is SAD.
So kudos, Switzerland. You’re rockin’ it.
