Introduction »

Welcome to the future! We present a speculative timeline of future history. Part fact and part fiction, the timeline is based on detailed research – including analysis of current trends, long-term environmental impacts, advances in technology such as Moore's Law, future medicine, geopolitical changes and much more. Where possible, references are provided to support the predictions. FutureTimeline is a collaborative, ongoing project – we welcome ideas from scientists, futurists, inventors, writers and anyone else who is interested in futurology.
