Earth 2050 – a glimpse into the future

12 April 2017

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Kaspersky Lab has created an interactive map that predicts the world, technology and cyber threats of 2050.

Kaspersky experts and futurologists teamed up with men and women of art and science and dreamers and innovators to make some predictions and presented them at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona. This is all a part of the Earth 2050 project which aims to provide a glimpse at the future.

Futurists, professionals and members of the public are encouraged to share their ideas. Designers, engineers and architects can bring the future as they see it to life and upload it to the map. Anyone who loves to think about the future is encouraged to share opinions and ideas with Kaspersky Lab. 

One of the popular predictions on the site at the moment is one based in Barcelona, suggested by Anton Vodogreev. He states “by 2050 the tallest buildings may be over 50km, almost exclusively for space travel, and space ports will be more common.” He believes “many residents will be androids, but there will also be new biological creatures” and “people will have minds linked to the net so will be able to communicate telepathically with each other and machines”.

Vodogreev has created a 360° view of what he believes Barcelona will look like in 2050…and its quite incredible. 

The site allows you to comment, agree or disagree with people’s predictions and even make some of your own easily. To found out how, click here!
