Technology In Minority Reports

Minority Report

I think that in 50 years from now the technology will be too advanced for everyone to even know. People won’t even need a phone, the phone will be in them, some type of way. Minority Report, directed by Steven Spielberg, takes place in 2054. Spielberg predicts that we will have a “pre-crime” system by that point. “Pre-crime” is a specialized police department in which 3 psychics called “precogs” can see or predict the future, but only crime that happens in the future. In that case so they can get to the crime scene and stop it from happening, before it happens. The crime has gone down by so much in that city. In Minority Report only one murder was committed, by John Anderson. Minority Report proves that technology has

Some of the types of technology are Retina Scanners, Crime Prediction Software, Jet Packs and more. There is many other inventions used in this movie, at this time in the future, but these are just a few that are important. Retina scanners are a form of biometrics which can identify you in reflections, they can also tell who is who, what there criminal background is and help solve crime. Crime Prediction Software can predict when and where crimes will take place. Using the pre-cogs first they were able to tell a crime was going to occur soon, then using this software they could detect exactly where so the crime can be stopped before it was even committed. Finally, Jet Packs are worn by policemen, used as a fast way of transportation to get from place to place. Mostly used to get to the crime scene as fast as possible. In my opinion, the three of these seemed to help the society in the movie, there seemed to be nothing wrong with them.

50 years from now in America the technology will be advanced than what it is today. I do also think that it may not be what the movie Minority Report thinks that it will be in 2054. There will probably be no need for phones. People will probably just have a chip in them or something which has all their information that they need. I think that cars will not have gasoline, they will just need to be charged

I do believe that Spielberg’s predictions are pretty accurate. I would also say that I do not agree with everything that he thinks that will be in the future. I can definitely see technology taking over our world. With all of the advanced technology we have today it seems very accurate that by that time the technology has grew. I think that the future could be good in some ways and bad in others. It all depends on what happens, because no one can know exactly what is going to happen 50 years from now. People are always saying how kids these days are so addicted to our phones and are constantly on them. 50 years from if technology is advanced as some people predict I wonder what they will be saying

    In his short article, “Minority Report”, Christopher Hitchens tells us the arrival of Columbus on the shores of the Americas “inaugurated a nearly boundless epoch of opportunity and innovation, and thus deserves to be celebrated with great vim and gusto” (Hitchens, Coursepack #67). He pays his loyalty to the atrocities of “racism, conquest and plunder” (Hitchens, Coursepack #67) that precipitated from that moment of cultural contact, but dismisses “those who view the history of North America as a…
