Minority Report

Minority Report
Minority Report - The year 2054 realised

The attention to detail in Minority Report is outstanding. All aspects of the vision of the world in which Tom Cruise stars were meticulously mapped out, including theories of what the internet will be like in 2054.

By 2054, technology will be integrated into our everyday lives so that our surroundings and experiences will be customized to our individual preferences and needs. Microchips will even be embedded in everyday objects such as jewelry and clothing, allowing for personalization according to mood, time of day, temperature, and other factors that we will be able to select.

In the home, there will no longer be a need for the “box in the corner” – the computer, game system, and home cinema will be combined into one flexible Internet interface. The screen will be part of a wall, or the wall itself, textured according to one’s personal taste and dimmed or brightened automatically depending on the lighting in the room. The console will be voice activated or fingerprint locked. Touch your hand to the screen and fingerprint recognition will initiate your personalized home page, complete with information you’ve pre-selected, as well as information selected for you based upon your established preferences and daily activities.

Wearing a wireless glove, you will be able to set up and organize a series of windows that give you access to information and media of all kinds. You will literally write commands in the air and watch as your handwritten requests are processed. Sign a bill and post it online. Write a letter and have it translated into any language for friends or business associates around the world. Via sensors encoded in the interface, this ultimate personal assistant will order your groceries based on what it “senses” in the refrigerator, remind you to put fuel in the car when it senses you’re running low, and tell you what the lunch special is at your favorite deli. Yes, in 2054 the Internet will be watching you!
