Author Predicts A Fantastic Future

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – In the future, your 15 minutes of fame may be closer than you think.

Dr. James Canton is the CEO of the Institute for Global Futures, and in his book, The Extreme Future (Plume), he discusses how advancements in medicine, fuel, and technology will shape and transform the world.

According to Dr. Canton, innovation is the name of the game, with teleporting and designer DNA making life easier and longer in the future.

But for another fantastic future feature, grab the remote.

Dr. Canton says in three to five years TV time will include telepresence, a technology that allows viewers to project themselves as characters into an actual show, movie, or video game.

He says, “You’ll be able to say, ‘I don’t want to just watch Eric Clapton or Britney Spears in concert, I want to be next to them on stage.’”

But no matter how the future unfolds, there will always be a few things that never go out of style.

Dr. Canton says, “At home, I have a phone with a cord, books, and maps. Some stuff will never be replaced.”
