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?'"

This could be a reference to school shooting. Very clever and sad.

This one reminds me once when I was at a restaurant with my husband. There was a girl sitting not far from our table. She was taking those "meal selfies" with her tablet. The screen was big enough for me to recognise myself in the background of her camera. You know what I did? Well, I smiled and posed, of course. ♥ (she noticed soon after and turned to a different angle mwhahaahah)

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.

R2-D2 robot from Star Wars movie was made from vacuum cleaner, so this could be true story
