Dark Future Ahead 23 – News from the ‘Net of a Cyberpunk bent

29 September, 2017

As you head into the weekend, time to share some inspiration for cyberpunk gaming culled from my expeditions into the matrix.  Enjoy the news:

A discussion of the rapidly increasing use of weaponized drones, quite interesting.

OA-X in actionBut for now, the US Air Force is sticking with piloted planes, but they are testing the final two competitors for the OA-X light attack plane contract under actual war flying conditions.  Sounds like a short campaign to me.

A look at how the regions of the US actually break up into greater metro areas.  Which megaplex are you closest to?

The business of lab growing meats, with an emphasis on test-tube tuna.  Lots of opportunities here for theft of recipes and sabotage.  But lab grown fish seems like it will be viable before the replacement for farm animals.

A news team visits the ruins of an abandoned Soviet bioweapons lab, with an emphasis on how difficult it is to kill anthrax spores.  Very worrying but some great setting ideas.

What visions of the coming dark future have you seen recently?
