The Venus Future

Jacque Fresco's The Venus Project (click to enlarge)

Someday, in the not too distant future, we will all live in retro-modern homes (like the Thunderbirds). There will be no crime. No wars. Life will be perfect, and the weather will always be warm.

Futurecity_05_1We will all wear the most inspired outfits! They will be blue. They'll have a sash for the men and a delightful little blue hat. Striking! Even our children will wear them (I'm wearing mine now).

Truthfully speaking... I have no idea what to think of The Venus Project. I don't know if I should laugh or be impressed. Or both. In any case, Jacque Fresco went to an incredible amount of work, and it's a lot of fun to browse around his personal vision of paradise.

This reminds me of a Star Trek episode I watched recently, where there was an alien race that had everything: peace, love, technology and no shortages of anything. Except, when you stepped on the grass you were executed.

I wonder why we are always still so limited in our visions of the future. Old sci-fi had mind-pills and plasma generated bread ovens, but the phones they used were never wireless (let alone mobile). What do we need to completely let go, and really rethink these visions?
