We’re now in the 2020s. Many of the tropes from films and literature about this era may not have come to fruition, but there’s a lot happening around us that does feel futuristic.

In this week's episode of The Interchange, we are offering up proof that we are living in the energy future — right now. 

Shayle and Stephen each pick a use of technology that once seemed futuristic but is now a reality.

We’re also going to choose a technology that we thought would have arrived by now but is still seemingly far off in the future.
