Feeling a bit disconnected from the latest Pokémon Go craze? Don’t worry,  if you’re still mostly living in the real world, Pokémon Go players tend to look like lost zombies searching for the virtual Holy Grail. If you dig virtual worlds, it’ll probably get worse.

To get a glimpse of how a not too distant future may look like for consumers through VR goggles, have a look at Hyper-Reality, a must-see concept film by Keiichi Matsuda. The  movie attempts to explore this exciting but dangerous trajectory. It’s a provocative and kaleidoscopic new vision of the future, where physical and virtual realities have merged, and the city is saturated in media.

“Our physical and virtual realities are becoming increasingly intertwined. Technologies such as VR, augmented reality, wearables, and the internet of things are pointing to a world where technology will envelop every aspect of our lives. It will be the glue between every interaction and experience, offering amazing possibilities, while also controlling the way we understand the world. “

In the words of American poet John Berryman, “the possibility that has been overlooked is the future”. Most of us are far too busy coping with present challenges to explore the future in any depth – and when we do our own cravings and fears often run away with us, resulting in utopias or dystopias that are not very helpful in terms of planning and decisions. Today’s professionals, leaders and their organisations need a dedicated, passionate long-term understanding of the future if they are to successfully navigate the exponential waves of change. For countless individuals and organizations that intelligence is called Gerd Leonhard.
