“Get Smart” got too smart with its gadgets

An article on MSNBC discusses how the new movie Get Smart, based on the 1960s T.V. show, had to change many of their gadgets because the gagdets used in the ’60s show now existed, including a tooth-phone. Just an example of science-fiction writing and art being a surprisingly good predictor of future technology and trends. Just look at Star Trek and a smattering of movie gizmos.
