According to Virgin Media, this is what the future will look like in as little as 13 years from now.
Whilst the video hasn’t received many comments, it’s not hard to imagine the responses to this, commenting on loss of privacy, lack of creativity, loneliness and a lot of pining for the ‘good old days’.
But it’s also a very exciting proposition and it’ll be interesting to see how much of this rings true in 2025. Apart from the promise of never having to spend another commute with your nose shoved in someone’s armpit, this vision of the future promises time less wasted. No more queuing at the supermarket, no more trips to the doctors. Time that you then get to spend on the things that matter most. Does it come at the cost of being constantly connected? Perhaps. But then when you look around at people beside you, in the street, you realise we are already constantly connected. By our phones, our watches, advertising, TV. This isn’t really a huge leap, rather a refinement of what we already have. Bring. It. On.
