I'm just after some information for my media studies class, we're studying dystopic fiction/film noir as a genre, and my task is to find out about various things that are happening or developing now that could turn our world into something like that in v for vendetta, gattica, blade runner, etc etc.


put short, share any scary technological advances that could put an aspect of current every day life at risk. (cloning, genetic engineering, monitoring & surveillance, and the like), preferably with sources.

Write about all the photography bans in england. You can't even take a pic of a policeman, you might get jailed for up to 10 years. Same with bridges, some public buildings and stuff.

This is a very intersting article about how robots and humans may be marrying each other (as well as having sex) by the year 2050. It is mostly intriguing because of its validity. Robotics are making serious advances each year and the potential for such a situation is almost "inevitable."

In addition, this idea would provoke tons of different controversies. Would robots have rights? Should it be allowed? What about robot ethics? What happens when death is involved?

It's also a podcast if you dig that sort of thing.

On a funny side note - the A.I. reseacher who is mentioned in the article is said to have researched in "sexology."

How cool is that?

I should also add that the article says robots and humans will be having sex as early as 2011. The idea of marriage doesn't come up until 2050 though.

An isolated enviroment-friendly city.
They're planning to build it in South Korea.

The freaky thing is that it will have anything one would need. Shopping malls, hospitals etc. etc.
The inhabitants wouldn never have to leave it.
That's just like the big isolated buildings in all sci-fi movies.

Living in a blank boring world, in a simple square shaped room all your life freaks me out.

No, but you said they're going to be able to have sex, so I just assumed...
