What was once just imagination is now real; what was once the distant future is now around the corner. The "Science Fiction" of the past has now simply become "Science". And the science of the future that was strangely prophesied by a group of visionaries whose dreams once may have deemed them renegades and "mad scientists" have become reality! In 1950, the term "Robotics" was coined by author Isaac Asimov in his book "I, Robot" and our collective imagination reeled. In the years since, literature, movies and television have allowed us to embrace the notion that the ideas of a few inspired visionaries could be made real. What is more astonishing is that these ideas have been, are currently and will be put to practice in our everyday lives. Each episode of this series will focus on how the great minds of Science Fiction imagined our future for us, and how some, in turn, made their fantasies real. Episodes: 'Mary Shelley', 'Phillip K. Dick', 'H.G. Wells', 'Arthur C. Clarke', 'Isaac Asimov', 'Jules Verne', 'Robert Heinlein', and 'George Lucas'.
