Say the phrase "Waterworld" and chances are you'll think about one of two things: 1) it being a box office disaster; or 2) how Kevin Costner's hero drank his own pee. The most expensive film ever made upon its release in 1995, it famously cost almost $US180 ($225) million but grossed only $US80 ($100) million in the US, making it one of Hollywood's biggest bombs at the time -- but somehow, it's lived on at Universal Studio Hollywood as a live-action stunt spectacular for over 20 years.

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.
