The ONE thing promised 'for the future' you really miss?

We've all seen the movies, the TV. They're good at promising all kinds of things, talking cars, highways in the air, cashless societies, but they rarely tend to get them accurate? If you had to choose ONE thing they got wrong that you wish they'd gotten right, what would it be, and why?

Me? Flying cars. Why? Well, let's just say less congestion on the road. Flying cars lead to air highways and (hopefully) less accidents?

Virtual reality and immortality.

Both often promised by various companies but never delivered :D

Replicators, transporters, holodecks, and that virtual immortality thing. If I had to choose just one, it would be virtual immortality on a holodeck.

I am missing software that really "works".

No, that pic is of a char conveyor belt system. Like the walkways in the Jetsons or some airports, but lazier :)

A reliable and virtually in-exhaustable energy supply would be a decent "first step", because, to be honest, without it, we're screwed in the long run, no matter what others may invent.

And no, renewable energy supplies are not the answer, at least not in the way they are currently implemented.

We need warp core technology :)
