People Who Live in the Future

You might call it a kind of social movement: They call themselves, futurists.

Futurists say they look at life with a perspective that they consider to be 5 to 10 years ahead of the rest of us. Obviously they're fascinated by the cutting edges of technology. But many of them are fascinated by the idea of bridging technology and the human body.

"I'm essentially living in the future," says Anders Sandberg -- a research fellow at the Future of Humanity Institute at Oxford University. "I'm trying to think ahead. But prediction is really hard. The interesting questions is: Can we learn what we are actually able to predict and which areas we should give up on?"
