One of the things Sydney has always held claim to -- alongside the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House and Centrepoint Tower -- has been the IMAX building in the city's Darling Harbour. Stretching 35.7 metres wide and 29.7 metres tall, the IMAX screen inside is -- or was -- the largest in the world, with three times the surface area of a regular IMAX (and, importantly, bigger than Melbourne's). Now, the IMAX Cinema and retail stores around it will soon close for three years, and it'll be demolished to be replaced by a slightly smaller screen -- albeit inside a much fancier building.

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.
