Finally checked out WIRED NextFest a couple of weeks ago. It's a World of Tomorrow-like exhibit, where visitors are supposed to get a hands-on glimpse of the future - like this Einstein-headed droid.
According to this year's NextFest, this is what we'll see in the future ...
In the future, androids will possess far superior intelligence and strength. Which is precisely why their human creators will make them resemble old Chinese scientists, otherwise robots would be getting ALL the pussy.
In the future, thanks to a global wheel shortage, everybody will be driving around on one wheel. Two wheels will be a luxury that only the super-rich will be able to afford.
In the future, the Japanese will invent an even more perverse form of sadomasochism using Mars probes and Guatemalans.
