It was only a matter of time before people started having relationships with technology. In the pseudo sci-fi film Her, director Spike Jonze takes us to what he refers to as the “slight future,” a time when daily life is dominated by technology so advanced it can understand–and even emulate—human emotions. Theodore Twombly (played by Joaquin Phoenix) is a lonely and depressed man who finds solace in his new computer-friend, but their "relationship" progresses to a genuine emotional attachment. Days, times vary.
