We are living in the future. The robots talk to people. If we buy a smartphone, we will get virtual reality glasses as a gift to it. Meals can be prepared from the powder and Uber can come to you without a driver. And this is only a part of fantastic reality around us!

Приближая будущее

Мы живём в будущем. Роботы разговаривают с людьми, при покупке смартфона в подарок дают очки виртуальной реальности, еду можно готовить из порошка, а Uber может приехать к вам без водителя. И это только часть окружающей нас фантастической реальности!
