I remember when I was a kid thinking about what the future might look like in thirty years. That was in 1985, and I was five. All types of new technology, and human advancement and progress was mentioned, and we laughed at some of the ideas. Other ideas were so impressive they just blew us away.
I guess some of those predictions were funny because they seemed far-fetched, but here we are thirty-four years later. We laughed at the idea of electric cars becoming a reality, but they’re on the road today.
I didn’t even know this until I discovered the electric gas station. Yes, the electric gas station! The future is here. It crept right up on us.
As it turns out Tesla, Inc. an American automotive and energy company in Palo Alto, California has been manufacturing electric vehicles since 2003. In 2018, consumers were able to purchase Tesla’s Model X, Model S, and Model 3. I just read recently that some of these cars could have solar panel roofs. Whoa! Not solar panels on the roof of the car, the car roof would be a solar panel.
So I was walking to different places within my neighborhood applying for work when I happened to notice the “gas station,” (pictured above). I couldn’t believe it. I just laughed to myself because we always sit around discussing the future and how our reality will change, and it’s happening. It’s happening everyday. Get out and be apart of it!
