Countercultures effect on technology

This weeks readings have looked at the terminology and driving forces for technology in films and books, Bell (2001) suggested that counterculture was the force behind adaption and was influential in driving forward new technology.

This is evident in recent films which have shown “futuristic” technology which has then gone on to be made in real life
Folding LCD screen – Minority report
Exoskeleton suit – Iron man
Invisibility cloak – Predator

It also appears as though “gamification” has come into ‘play’ now and is the biggest drive in technology, mainly because of the revenue brought in from successful games and the virtual life experience of engaging with the technology.
