Lava DronesJadrienC

I don't know if there's a term for it, but I love this kinds of images. Most sci-fi art focuses on technology, and while this does too, it doesn't make it stand out. It's more like a vista with a drone in the way.

I posted a few in the Good Future thread, http://www.futuretim...e-thread/page-7

I don't know what's the word... it's sorta like this

I suppose the phrase would be, "it looks like it's actually part of a picture," rather than "here's an epic, breathtaking sci-fi technoscape." As in, one's trying to show you it's set in the future, but the other's just a picture that happens to be in the future. Or high fantasy. Or whatnot. It's not trying to draw attention to itself, sort of like real life. Not good for entertainment (like Hollywood movies, which rely on flash), but I've always found it interesting.

 

I am just not explaining this well.

 

Okay, so imagine this photo. Now add some 2050-era ASIMOs working in that field so this looks like a photo taken in the 2050s. That's what I mean. Total realism.

 

Still not doing a good job, gurdummit...

Point is, I vastly prefer this over this. Both are awesome cubed, but that's just my preference.

I love this one because it's a sci fi pic... with actual weather.

I propose we make this the definition of metahuman:

I already defined "metahuman," though this would technically fall into it.

 

 

Its ancestors were apes. My god, the emperor has no clothes!

In all technicality, even if he's post biological, he's still an ape ;)

 

Embrace it!

Yeah, and if you think about it, his pose in the image is what apes commonly do. I guess some habits are really, really, really hard to die.

^ Very Blade Runner-isque.

 

And then blend it in with Artificial Intelligence.

It looks too clean to be Blade Runner. This comes across more as cyberdelia's "the top and bottom are white" than cyberpunk's "what's white at the top is black at the bottom". I dunno, there's more optimism there than typical dystopian pessimism.
