    has anyone seen Big Hero 6?



    I think buildings will be built by micro robots soon and there will be almost no limit to what they can do

    they'll produce the material they build from as they build

    i'm going to live in a house that's a giant replica of luka's head

    someone's future truncated
    well this is partly what i was alluding to. the refusal of responsibility. the breakaway civilization. the atlantis of ayn rand. the city of quartz. a classic picture of the future.

    si, a generous dollop of futuro-visionary corporate urbanist bollocks on that movie https://gizmodo.com/a-tour-of-san-fr...t-f-1642066794

    The new movie Big Hero 6 represents the first-ever partnership between Marvel and Disney, two entities known for constructing fantastical universes. So it's not surprising that bringing the story to film also required building an entire city of the future: a blend of Tokyo and San Francisco named San Fransokyo.

    Through the yellow doorway you get to Silo 3. Silo 2 is the path behind me, and silo 1 directly down the tube in front.
