Advertisement of the Day: This Subway Ad Looks Like Something Out of Mad Max

We get a little bit closer to that dystopian future of our dreams everyday. Sometimes an advertisement notices how close we are. An subway billboard in Beijing has done just that. The advertisement is for a sports haze mask and features a female running with a face mask that looks like a souvenir from Fury Road. A sports haze mask is for people attempting to exercise in heavy smog areas, like Beijing. Twitter reacted, as it's wont to do, welcoming the new oncoming dystopia.

37 Comments, Posts, And Headlines That Did Not Age Well

Oh, the irony. "The Future Is Private" that's certainly rich. These headlines are so far off from the truth of the future, it's depressing and slightly frightening. But still, you have to laugh at just poorly these posts have aged.

The Circus In Germany Is Using Holograms Instead Of Real Animals To Stop The Animal Abuse

Welcome to the circus of the future! When it comes to the circus, animal abuse has always been a major problem. However, Circus Roncalli, a German circus founded in 1976, is making a change for the better, and they don't even need to rid themselves of the entire circus to do so! Thanks to Bluebox, who successfully installed 11x ZU850 Optoma models and 11x BX-CTA03 lenses, the circus can now offer stunning and action-filled performances involving animals without actually having any. It's a complete win-win situation: visitors get to enjoy the sight of the animals, the circus can live on, and real animals can be left alone! See some of the spectacular images and video of the circus of the future below.

Back in the late 1800s, a group of French artists imagined what the year 2000 would look like and illustrated all kinds of scientific and everyday inventions they envisioned.
