BMW's The Future Isn't What It Used To Be

BMW's The Future Isn't What It Used To Be

Today's fourth installment marks the last in BMW's documentary series entitled "Wherever You Want To Go." Entitled, "How We'll Learn To Stop Worrying And Love The Future," the last video segment pushes an optimistic take on what's to come in the world of personal mobility, positing that it might just be possible to move to more responsible transportation while keeping the fun intact.

Last time, BMW looked at the way we use telecommunications to work, socialize, and play, and how computers will play a role in the future of transportation.

In part two, we heard people that lived through the Tomorrowland and Jetsons vision of the future in the 1960s that were disappointed with where we've actually managed to come--after all, where are the flying cars? It wasn't all deflated hopes, but a more realistic look at where the future of transportation tech might take us.

Part one was about the future of urban mobility and what we'll face as population density grows and the need to get around effectively grows with it. Bonus? Buzz Aldrin hitching rides on whale sharks.

The theme: to get where you want, when you want, with a minimum of hassle. Watch it to see what BMW has to say, through the eyes of people like Aldrin, Zipcar co-founder Robin Chase, Graham Hill, founder of Treehugger, and more.

  1. Riding whale sharks (which are sharks) is not to be encouraged. In many areas where they gather, there are laws against harassing them, just the same as there are against harassing mammalian whales like humpbacks and dolphins. That was probably not the case when Buzz Aldrin took his joy ride, but we've learned anough to know now that its better to just leave them be.
