A sleepy industrial park in the inner west of Sydney is a world away from remote Birdsville, Queensland and the 100 or so locals who call it home. About 2-3 day’s drive with the sun in your eyes. But this is where the voyage begins, as finishing touches are made to KFC’s full-blown original recipe big rig. Dubbed “The Colonel”, it’s ridiculous and over the top. There’s a slide on the side. A festival within a festival headed to the Big Red Bash -- the world’s most remote music festival that sees Birdsville’s population grow to over 7000. All in the shadow of a giant red sand dune on the edge of the Simpson desert.

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.
