Kaspersky is mapping how the life on Earth will look like in 2050


The cybersecurity firm – Kaspersky Lab created an interesting project called Earth 2050 for their 20th birthday. The goal is to map how the life on our planet will look like in the future.

The project accumulates predictions about social and technological developments for the upcoming 30 years. Everything is served on the futuristic looking 3D globe. You can explore predictions per geography and time (2030, 2040 and 2050). Each yellow dot on the map will take you to a 360 Street-View like visualization where you can see how places and cities might look like in the future.


To create Earth 2050, Kaspersky Lab has teamed with futurologists such as Ian Pearson, added the future visions of its own researchers and spoken to artists and scientists to develop a realistic view of the not-so-distant future. Interestingly you can also contribute to the project and add your predictions and images.


Cool project!
