How is the digital revolution shaping the way we interact with media? Below is a cool concept video exploring how the internet has already changed the way we consume and share information. It then presents a timeline into the next 40 years, giving us a vision of how content may be consumed in the future.

Traditional information sources like books, newspapers, and even your own experiences may be fully replaced by new interfaces, like electronic paper, simulated reality through virtual worlds, and memory sharing among the masses.

Is this a desirable future for us? Will we develop software that will replicate our sensory experiences so well that virtual life may be indistinguishable from the real thing? Is the next step in human evolution moving towards a digital destination?
