As we continue moving forward technologically, what will the near future look like in comparison to how we see it today? One designer from Argentina, Fernando Barbella, has set himself out to try and answer that very question. Using his digital mashup designing skills, Barbella presented several different images all within a single topic – “Signs from the near future“!
Each design incorporates futuristic signs and symbols into a scene we’d see everyday. While the future is likely to be much more spectacular than our minds are able to comprehend, Barbella’s designs certainly force the viewers to question what exactly is coming and what they’re to prepare for.
Shown in each image are slight tweaks of what first appears to be your everyday photos of the early 21st century. These tweaks include A.I. elevators, human biotech augmentation, drones and driverless cars—all of which are huge topics of interest lately in the fields of science and technology. What these image designs do is present a somewhat realistic look into how emerging technologies will reshape modern society and how modern society will respond as a result.
