Admit it; you’ve thought about life in the far flung, alien future. Maybe you’ve thought about it today, whether it’s a skyscraping utopia or a scarred nuclear desert full of mobile monoliths. Artists and architects are thinking about it too, and their visions of what may come will really get your future fantasies cooking.
Do you hate rats? If so, you’re not going to like what Dr Jan Zalasiewicz, a University of Leicester paleobiologist, has to say about the future of Earth.

Holy. Crap. We see a lot of cool stuff around the ‘net, but this is by far one of the coolest: MIT has invented a display-like gadget that sits on your desk and renders 3D content based on wireframe models beamed to it from Kinect. It lets you touch things without really being there, and it’s a must-see.
