A glimpse into daily life in America in 2050…

If, like me, you’ve always been curious about life in the future, the role of technology and how 7 billion people will live in harmony (yes, by year end 2011, there’ll be 7 billion of us!), here’s a interesting peek into the not-so-distant future. As imagined through the eyes of America 2050, with their piece entitled : “Journey to Detroit”.

Sometime in the not too distant future, John wakes up in suburban Chicago on a Saturday morning and heads to a White Sox gamein Detroit. Join him on a 300 mile journey to Detroits Comerica Park as he experiences the transportation options of the future: a neighborhood electric car share program, smart phone ticketing, high-speed rail, and connecting light rail. This clip is brought to you by America 2050 as part of its A Better Tomorrow project to visualize America’s future communities and transportation systems.
