I find it helpful to talk about some 'exotic' technology in conjunction with a present technology that was considered exotic in the recent past.

For instance, I was talking to a family member about a recent article I read on one company's research into bioimplants of personal computers. I jokingly stated that I would be the first on line to receive such an implant. He said I was crazy and didn't think it would ever happen. I had him recall watching StarTrek as a child and how exotic personal handheld communicators seemed back then. Now even he is getting a cell-phone!
