What Will Your Gadgets Look Like In 100 Years?

A Japanese concept artist has visualised what the stuff we use and wear will look like in a century's time. Those smooth white edges and crisp screen displays? Not so shiny by then.

Maico Akiba's 100 Years Later project artificially ages everything from calculators to vending machines to shoes. The results are a rather alarming look at entropy and rust, whether you're a fan of accordions or iPods. The full gallery is well worth browsing through, although nothing -- absolutely nothing -- could convince me to sip on a 100 year old can of coffee.
