Dark Future Ahead 9 – News from the ‘Net of a Cyberpunk bent

12 December, 2014

I have ended up with a mostly nautical theme here, inadvertently:

Would you live in an underwater city?  Even if not, it would be a great place to visit.  This one is designed to be self-sufficient in energy through various means.

Which would be shipped in containers carried by ships like the new massive Triple-E container ships, the largest currently in service carrying 18,00 containers.  And here is some information, and amazing photographs, about how it was built.

And those ships, heavily insured and it is Captain Nick Sloane’s job to board troubled vessels and salvage what he can, read about his fascinating career.  Nautical salvage, an interesting idea for an adventure (or campaign).

The US Navy has deployed its first laser armed ship.  More to follow soon.

I am writing this from shaky.hatch.exacted, what does that mean?  Well, a company called what3words has divided the world up into 3m x 3m squares and given each a three word code that you can use to find that location.  Interesting and full of potential.

Lastly, Harley-Davidson is working on an all-electric bike, the Livewire.
