This Week's Answer: Ice Pods

What will the future be like? Will cars fly? Will we live longer? Will giant ants rule Earth and make us slaves in their sugar factories?

One thing's for certain, we'll no longer enjoy plain old ice cubes. In the future, we earthlings will be sipping cold drinks filled with ice pods. That's right, ice pods. Our robot servants will fill our ice pods with mint leaves, fruit, or juice. Then freeze them, remove them, and plop the pods in our drinks, giving an extra jolt of flavor to our Synthetic Water or Google Aide.

And because we'll all be super-rich in the future, we won't mind paying $10 for four ice pods which, in the present day, would seem like a lot of money for plastic balls that we never needed in the first place.

All hail the Queen Ant!
