Shopping in 2015?

Natalie Dixon
January 2nd 2011

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).

Ine Geevers: #YesNaturally was about co-evolution and partnership. How to become friends with o.a. bacteria, microbes and viruses. Because yes, they can be deadly and vital at the same time.
