Fast Future - Towards 2057
Discovery Channel's series 2057 is a fascinating look into what the world might be like in the year 2057. Each episode comes with a lot of technology and even a storyline to add a bit of drama. Some of the ideas are pretty creepy, such as your insurance company being able to keep tabs on your health and activities via your clothing and offering 'plantinum' coverage for the very healthiest. All in all though, it really is a great series and shows the potential of technology. Haven't seen any real predictions on what the future might hold socially, economically, and politically but the technology is certainly entertaining enough.
