1) any tech I let others test it first.
2) I wait for a period of time AFTER it’s been ‘proven” and on the market before adopting it.
3) Even then, sometimes I don’t.
Example: Laser surgery for eyes. I have shit eyes. Thought about the surgery in the 80s as a teenager when it was slicing with a razor. Read up on it. Saw the side effects. Didn’t like them. I waited.
Then LASERS WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING. Totally took over the industry.
I learned that your eyesight changes in your 40s. So, I waited ’til my 40s.
Now, my eyesight is getting better and better all of the time. It’s still crap but at least I can use my phone without my glasses.
The surgery? I’ll still wait. So, when it comes to quantum teleportation though? I’ll wait until it’s commonplace and everyday.
Even then would I do it? I dunno. I like my feet on the ground. I don’t even care for going in cars but I do it. Or planes, but i do it. But honestly? I’m fine. As a sci-fi fan, I had to come to the hard conclusion one day that I’d never want to travel in space. Ships would be too thin. Would I want to worry about a future force-field failing? Nope.
NOTE: By tech, I mean anything that involves physical danger to me. Anything computer/internet related I’m there.
For argument’s sake? Yeah I’d do it. I’ll be there on the other side. I’d expect a headache or SOME kind of side-effects but yeah, I wouldn’t have a problem with it.
