Shopping in 2015?

A panacea Yoghurt? Cures athlete’s foot, acne and dandruff! Triple irradiated Spinach? Three-week shelf life! Funa sushu? Asian carp fresh from Lake Superior! Minority Report sequel? Fake or Real? Neither. It’s futuristic shopping as seen through the eyes of Wired magazine readers. The title’s editorial team, tongue in cheek, cobbles together readers’ submissions as inspiration for their “What’s Next?” page (past themes include Dive Bars and Retirement Homes of the future). The January issue features The Grocery Store of the Future. Wonder how long we’ll have to wait for the Jiffy Pop Corn Grenade?

For another take on the future of supermarkets see the Nano Supermarket event in Amsterdam (27 Jan – 2 Feb 2011).
