Elon Musk

This quote was added by user931654
If you go back a few hundred years, what we take for granted today would seem like magic - being able to talk to people over long distances, to transmit images, flying, accessing vast amounts of data like an oracle. These are all things that would have been considered magic a few hundred years ago.

I agree @ kevint - except when it comes to 'being able to talk to people over long distances'. The telephone was invented in 1876 - so people were able to make long-distance calls 100 years ago (though, for quite some time after its invention, the telephone could only be afforded by the very wealthy, so less advantaged people did not have ready access to telephones)

I think that you could say that it would have been considered magic just 100 years ago. 300 years ago you might have been burned at the stake.
