The tech maverick is himself working on several projects that are expected to make things described in popular sci-fi books a reality. Musk’s SpaceX is simplifying space travel and hopes to land the first humans on Mars before 2030. One of his other projects, Neuralink, is working on connecting human brains with computers.
Not a day goes by without Elon Musk creating a storm on social media with his posts. This time, the entrepreneur sparked a torrent of comments after he posted a snippet from a 1995 interview with Bill Gates on the David Letterman Show.
The footage shows the Microsoft co-founder talking to the host about the Internet, with Letterman making sarcastic remarks about the World Wide Web and doubting that it will become a big thing.

"I can remember a couple of months ago, there was, like, a big breakthrough announcement that on the Internet, or on some computer deal, they were going to broadcast a baseball game. You could listen to a baseball game on your computer and I just thought to myself, ‘does radio ring a bell?'" the TV host said.

Musk captioned his post with the question: "Given the almost unimaginable nature of the present, what will the future be?"
The entrepreneur’s question prompted wild speculation.



Some netizens made crazy predictions.


Others took a dig at Elon Musk.


Many seemed pessimistic about what awaits humanity…



Others said they were happy to live now and deemed that the future is already here.



Still others joked about the issue and marvelled at how quickly humanity has achieved technological progress.
