We have pushed the limits of technology in trying to solve our problems. McLuhan has said that all technology is an extension of the body. The wheel is an extension of the foot (the short arc of the foot taken 360 degrees). The telescope is an extension of the eye. However, these things have made us as happy as we can be. The next generation of "stuff" has to improve the body. Example, suppose we could use gene manipulation so that almost anyone can run 1 mile quickly. Imagine the impact on transportation! Instead of trying to figure out where to put bus and train stations, you could spread them out 2 miles apart and the commuter would literally "run" to catch his bus or train. We could not have to worry about last mile problems as it would be as easy for future humans as it is for us to walk to our car in the driveway.
