Allegedly Revolutionary Technology That Has Failed Miserably
Too soon. Too dangerous. Too much promise with too little delivery. Too … Elon-y? These qualities make for some of the biggest and best tech failures of all time. You have to hand it to creators with big dreams though. They had what they thought was a game-changing technological advancement, and they even had the salesmanship to raise millions (in some cases billions) of dollars to bring their vision to life.
The idea itself was so big and bold that we desperately wanted to believe in it, but that kind of hype made these blunders all the more glaring. That’s the thing about imagination… The physical world can rarely match our fantasy. They wanted so badly to change the world, but something along the way — whether it was timing, a massive oversight, or even an outright lie — turned what could have been revolutionary technology into these complete and utter failures.
