The Tesla showroom in Manhattan offers free Keurig cups to visitors. It's the most apt thing I could ever have hoped to see, because they both strike me as things that are simultaneously very much in keeping with the future we're creating and very wrong about how we're going about it.

Electric cars aren't a new thing; the technology predates gasoline-fueled engines by a few years. Instant coffee and powdered drinks are well established. It's the precise application of these creations in these particular fashions. Keurig cups are inefficient and unsustainable and frankly make a poor cup of coffee, and Tesla cars' design and form seem less emphasized towards practicality and widespread applicability and more on unreachable luxury. It didn't feel like the future as it should be, either from fantastic leaps or organic development. It felt like what the past thought the future was going to be like.
