All You Can Buy at Wal-Mart Township

Wal-Mart is about to open it’s own community where residents sign up to live in a Wal-Mart buffet! Sounds crazy, but believable, doesn’t it? Sorry, all you Wal-Mart fanatics, it’s not true, but for a prediction of 2020, I could see it happening. Future Feed Forward, reports the news of the future in Onion-esque fashion. With titles like, Microsoft Announces Handguns with Web Access and McDonald’s New ‘Surplus Value Menu’ Pays You To Eat, all set in the future, these predictions seem comparable to the pet cellphone, a real product on the market.

Space for Screaming

December 31st, 2004 | Filed under: Design, Humor | No Comments »


ScreamBody is the first of the series of Wearable Body Organs. ScreamBody is a portable space for screaming. When a user needs to scream but is in anynumber of situations where it is just not permitted, ScreamBody silences the user’s screams so they may feel free to vocalize without fear of environmental retaliation, and at the same time records the scream for later release where, when, and how the user chooses.
