If you love the 1960's Tomorrowland spirit, you're going to love Jacque Fresco and his "Future by design" project. Jacque Fresco was born in 1916, is now 95, and is considered by many like a modern-day Da Vinci. Peer to Einstein and Buckminster Fuller, Jacque is a self-taught futurist who describes himself most often as a “generalist” or multi-disciplinarian, a student of many inter-related fields. He is a prolific inventor, having spent his entire life conceiving of and devising inventions on various scales which entail the use of innovative technology. As a futurist, Jacque Fresco is not only a conceptualist and a theoretician, he is also an engineer and a designer.
His organization,The Venus Project (named after the town he lives in, Venus, Florida), works to provide a global vision of hope for the future of human kind in our technological age. The Venus Project reflects the culmination of Jacque's life work: the integration of the best of science and technology into a comprehensive plan for a new society based on human and environmental concern.
A documentary, also called "Future by design", was directed by academy award nominee William Gazecki. You can see below the full 1h29min movie or, if you don't have the time, the trailer of it. The first video below is the trailer and you can also learn more about Jacque Fresco on Wikipedia HERE.
And here is the full 1h29min movie (recommanded to watch!).
