The future is: We will either be here on this planet with our advancing technologies, possibly flying cars, or even just a lot more problems that poor Earth has to deal with. Second possibility: Total destruction of our existence to make room for something new.
I don't think we'll ever look like that picture. XD For some reason I doubt technology will run in that direction.
I'm thinking we're going to have some sort of global disaster before there's another huge boom in technologies. Either an epidemic of disease or global climate change. Something that'll wipe out a huge chunk of the human population and set us back a few hundred years. That hasn't happened in a long, long time... we're a bit over due.
For me, the future has rarely existed. I live in the present and deal it with from there... .__.;
