The future is now. While that is a very cliche statement, it is true. What was once the dreams of futurists and science fiction writers of the 1960s and 70s are now becoming real. This tech is on full display in Sandro Monetti’s Tech to the Future, which is hosted by futurist, innovator, and investor Francis Hellyer.
The short documentary spotlights some remarkable technological advances designed to make life significantly easier for the average person. Let’s get right into it with Aeromobil. As the name suggests, it’s a flying car that will only cost $1-$2 million to drive/fly off the dealership. Deepfake is a filmmaking technology that boasts face replacement and A.I. performances for your upcoming project. The demonstration we’re given is an artificial intelligent performance by Bruce Willis. Trioscope is a blockchain-based content providing photorealistic action; this was featured in the Netflix film The Liberator.
“…spotlights some remarkable technological advances…”
Cytovale is a medical tech company in the early stage of diagnosing the fast-growing disease known as Sepsis. Its speed could save thousands of lives. Lastly, Hellyer takes us to the Hollywood Museum to have a chat with the director about the visions of science fiction in early and contemporary Hollywood cinema.
As a documentary, Tech to the Future reminds me of those science shows that would play on local television channels on the weekends. They were essentially low-budget affairs that could be sold into broadcast syndication so stations could receive some passive income. This is pretty no-frills in its production values while presenting some interesting new technology. The Bruce Willis Deepfake presentation is the coolest and creepiest of the bunch. The short is worth watching for that alone.
