    Many out looks of what the future may come some examples include that people will be living in a virtual world, in air, space or underwater… Land will be gone

    We plan to emphasize the lack of reality present in the current day and show the advances towards a more digital environment that will take place. We will be questioning what will still be real in the future and if technology will become our lives instead of part of our lives.

  5. Connor Crawford says:

    Our general first idea is that we will focus on two realities in 2050.
    The real world and the expensive online virtual grid. The internet, second life and full virtual reality have been merged into one. Nearly every household has a device that logs you into a permanent account you receive at birth. The “account” has real world-type consequences. The world is policed and controlled by a government, which is a large section of the real world government. People work and make money (digitized) in the virtual world. We will continue to expand upon the virtual world.

    Due to the ever expanding virtual world, parts of the 2010 real world are greatly reduced. Office buildings, recreation, stadiums, many physical buildings are more or less no longer required, and the space is replaced with renewable energy sources and other things of that nature. we will continue to expand upon this too.
