Since I've watched the Back To The Future movies, I have been hoping time travel would appear in my life in one way or another. It finally did. Futurism, an online magazine, produces weekly cartoon sketches that imagine the everyday life of tomorrow, and it's as close to an 88mph DeLorean ride as anything can be.

There are three people working on the series. Luke Kingma (concept, copy, art direction), Lou Patrick Mackay (illustration), and Jacob Banas (social media). "In a broad sense, we are exploring humanity’s relationship with technology, both now and in the future," Kingma told Bored Panda. "Part of that is giving people a glimpse of what tomorrow could look like at a personal level: the good, the bad, the absurd. Occasionally, we like to comment on science fiction culture, and on political matters, because we just can't help ourselves."

No themes are off the table. "In many cases, we are looking at emerging technologies that are still in development, and asking, 'What might happen next?'" the artist added. "Other times, we are taking something we find interesting or funny about humans, and asking, 'How would this play out with robots?'" Scroll down to step into the brave new world of Futurism, and upvote your favorite pieces!

This one is not as bad as it seems. If we can use VR technology to navigate through dangerous places in space why not use them? Since we can always replace a drone or robot.

One question, would it necessarily become a bad thing if technology became self aware? Would they really want to harm us? It’s always fascinated me.

People these days dump each and every thing about their lives on internet, and then cry of data privacy laws not strong. Recently my friend shared such a anti-Facebook post on his wall, and interestingly I exactly knew from his check-ins where he went for food and fun for last many days. Then he complains why Facebook is showing him suggestion for restaurants.
