McDonald's In 2020

Frog Design envisions what your Value Meal will look like in 2020 - ignoring my disappointment that the drink isn't the size of a large movie theatre popcorn bucket, I can appreciate seeing my heart attack in real time.

Technically, the above concept has nothing specific to do with fast food. It's called Bodynet, and it's a persistent health tracker that projects the outcome of activities on your body.

Their other ideas include the ThingBook, a catalogue of the stuff you see that you want...

...and the Whuffie Meter, a real-time display of your social standing.

There's not doubt that augmented reality will make such information part of our day to day lives, but I do wonder if these concepts are missing something inevitable and obvious: the ads. [designmind and Forbes via infosthetics]
