This year the BBC is looking into the future, to find out what it holds for health, education, transport and even love. The season is called "What If?" and we want you to be a part of it. Here's how you can get involved.
Interesting infographic made by designers and futurists charting possible futures and their timelines:
BBC Future has compiled 40 intriguing predictions made by scientists, politicians, journalists, bloggers and other assorted pundits in recent years about the shape of the world from 2013 to 2150.
They came out with interesting ten tips for a great future animation :
• Gather as much information as you can
• Make your content different
• Make a story, not a description
• Make it punchy
• Engage your audience
• Make it for children
• Make use of your characters
• Stay one step ahead of what the audience expects
• Humour works
• Sound effects

The Sustainable City of the future
The Sustainable City of the future is currently being built in the desert of Abu Dhabi... the City of Masdar... If you don't know about Masdar project I invite you to have a look at the Masdar website. The city has been started in 2006 or so and is planned to be done within the coming 10 or 15 years. A gigantic project for a "sustainable" technological city. http://masdarcity.ae/en/ and videos : http://masdarcity.ae/en/49/resource-centre/video-gallery/
It's quite easier to build a sustainable city form scratch than retrofitting existing ones... (sustainable... but nothing is explained about food providing, health, etc.)
Microsoft: Sustainable Future Video

or the much similar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OptqxagZDfM All those videos are offering very questionnable futures...
