Black Mirror
Some of you may already be into the show Black Mirror but for those that don't know it consists of independent episodes each looking into the near future and exploring the darker side of emerging technologies. The third series just released and it's fantastic, I think most people into OA will like it. Some of the things explored in the latest episodes are:

- Society organised by social media score (a changing value based on people rating each other that acts as a class definer)

- Virtual worlds and uploading for the elderly

- Military uses of augmented reality technology

- Synsect swarms to maintain the ecology in event of mass pollinator die off (this one in particular had some great visuals and plot).

The episodes don't link to each other so you can watch any one, no need to have seen the previous series or anything like that. It's available on netflix right now Smile

I love the show and have nearly finished the third series, if anyone else does and wants to chat about it we can perhaps spin off a spoiler thread (it's difficult to talk about many episodes without spoiling the plot).
OA Wish list:
  1. DNI
  2. Internal medical system
  3. A dormbot, because domestic chores suck!
