It's been a year of recalls and "uncontrollable diarrhoea" for Soylent and its fans. While such a big upset could theoretically inspire a startup to reevaluate and refine its existing products, Soylent continues to march forward -- a recent listing on Amazon reveals two new flavours of the futuristic food just in time for the new year. Happy 2017!

One of Soylent's biggest ingredient suppliers -- TerraVia -- has thrown down the gauntlet and cut ties with the meal replacement company, effective immediately. It's part of possibly the strangest PR feud of the year, and probably the first major controversy in history involving algae.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
