Dark Future Ahead 13 – News from the ‘Net of a Cyberpunk bent12 November, 2015
Time again for the latest interesting and cyberpunk inspiring stories that I have found:
Converting oil tankers into housing and communities. Seems like an interesting place to live or at least visit.
While an Italian group (called WASP, World’s Advanced Saving Project) is building a machine that uses 3D printing technique to build a house from local materials. The building are basic but look tough, useful for emergency shelters, barracks, inexpensive housing, and other uses. How would you react to a village full of these?
Inside one of the main internet hub in NY, if this does not inspire adventure ideas I do not know what will.
Boeing, working to keep airports safe, by developing lasers to burn drones out of the sky. You think it is bad when a bird get sucked into a jet engine, a pizza deliver drone is every worse.
What about agrivoltaics, the mixed use of solar energy generating photovoltaic arrays and agriculture? An interesting way forward for a changing world.
Or perhaps floating farms, mixing fish farming and hydroponics, might be another option. Anchor them offshore and harvest year round.
What signs of the coming dark future have you seen recently?
