I don’t know about you, but despite all the apparent slow down with the economy and technology, advances in design and technology seem to be coming faster. Below are some links to the future available today:

Pouchulu Architects – very cool future architecture.
Nokia 7600 – wireless video phone.
4GB storage on your keychain – ‘ouch’ on the price though!
SpeedTree – Finally, realistic trees and grasses for games.
100-meter ground based telescope – not yet, but its being seriously discussed!
Maestro – Explore Mars the way NASA Does.
Year of the Green Machine – Hybrid Cars come of Age.

By the end of this year I expect that we’ll see a near complete and unrestricted convergence of home media (stereo, TV, etc) with the PC despite whatever DRM restrictions they try to put in place. Secondly, I predict that by 2007, DRM will turn out to be a complete waste of time and money, and the marketplace winners will be people offering high quality digital content at reasonable prices without any restrictions.
