3D CASES in the media:
Perspective- A Reference Source To The Year 2020
by P.s. Rothbein
See the game changers and the world of tomorrow, Today!
Perspective’s mission is to sparkle your imagination about how today’s events will impact the future.
In 2017 people are dressing more creatively as a result of Etsy? Electric skateboards at the next 2018 X-Games? Will the CIA use Google Glasses? Will Google Glasses have apps offering X-Ray vision, microscopic vision, telescopic vision, and facial recognition. Stories about big companies embracing corporate crowdfunding? Virtual Reality will be re-branded as a Vicarious Reality. Imagine a world where almost every teenager downloads fashion and prints from their own home. It is beginning today with 3D CASES. See the stories about 3D printing changing the economy, changing manufacturing, and creating a new breed of crime.
Be In the Know About Game Changers and Possibilities In:
If you want free information about what might be headed in the future than you get what you pay for. Reading in the same format as you are familiar with whether it be a blog, forum, journal, or newspaper.
But if you want a new form of storytelling that you are not familiar with, presenting future news as if it has happened today. While seeing a perspective on how the current news will play out in the near future. Than that is why you should support Perspective.
This won't turn you into a 21st century Nostradamus. Yet, this book is the closest thing. Rather than indulging in fantasy, the Almanac will be a home for science fiction in the truest sense – stories that are well within the realm of possibility.
It will take prediction made by author from sources like Wired, Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, and the Future Agenda http://www.futureagenda.org/. It will also take announcements of big projects in development and write a story about it as if taking place. Example, Google's announcing their driverless car. Example will be "New Startup Business To Offer Travel Deals on Long Distance Driverless Car Packages As Alternative To Flying." "Uber Drivers and Taxi Drivers Unite Against Driverless Cars" to "Carpooling Boom in America Helps Lower Gas Prices."
Stories will be very short. Perspective's mission is not to change your mind about the possibilities about the future. Perspective mission is to encourage you to be more curious about possibilities you never thought could happen in the future.
