Sad about the singularity?

Sad robot with red balloon

Is this robot really sad? Or is it just celebrating the technological singularity it its own quiet way?

I don’t want to project onto this robot. Maybe he’s programmed to be happy with his single red balloon. Unlike Zathir, the entity that takes over the Internet in The Fridgularity, available on Amazon as a paperback or a Kindle edition. (It’s coming to other online stores in December.)

Vote! Vintage Ads of Fictional Futures

I managed to get the gallery down to a shortlist of six. You can vote below, or visit the gallery to see all the entries. (Highly recommended — there is some incredibly creative and wonderful work there.)

Feel free to tell me what an idiot I am for my choice of six in the comments!

Voting is open until October 11th.

Alltop forgot to enter.

Vintage Ads of Fictional Futures, so far so good

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the gallery of entries yet, you really should. There is some great stuff there. And IO9 just linked to the gallery, and they did a nifty little selection they liked.

Here’s just a taste:

Alltop loves a good Eloi roast.
