WIRED Magazine’s Map of the Future

WIRED Magazine recently commissioned Italian design firm Density Design to create a Map of the Future based on the scenarios developed by the Institute For The Future in Palo Alto, California.


The results are stunning — an eye-pleasing amalgamation of trends from 7000 of the world’s top thinkers in areas including politics, infrastructure, the environment, economics, and society (i.e. each of the brown tabs at the top of the image).

Behance Network has done a nice job of deconstructing the entire map into its respective pieces — just in case you’d like to peer deeper into one of the areas. In the field of economics, for example, get ready for a future of Filters as Brands, Open-Source Development, Solidarity Networks and Alternative Currencies (mobile phone minutes as currency, anyone?).
