AJ and Jen talk about the technology in the “In Death” series: what Nora got right, what Nora got wrong, and what we’re not sure about yet.
Voice Commands – Alexa/Siri
AutoChef – Tovala Oven
Drying Tubes – Tornado Body Dryer
PPC (Personal Palm Computer) – Though, Palm Computing had come out with their first generation of Palm Pilots in 1996, So not much of a stretch.

Holo-Rooms: Euclideon Holographics – Jen wonders if a tactile Holoroom, where you can actually feel and interact with things would work.

Hologram meetings – DVE Holograms
No text messaging in first several books

Something like the Olympus Resort in space – Aurora Station
