The compleat Wired future artifacts gallery, 02009

Picking up where we left off in collecting tech monthly Wired's 'Found' artifacts-from-the-future into a year by year gallery: this is the 02009 collection.

Some readers may recall that the series was surreptitiously euthanised in mid-08, only to be resurrected shortly thereafter by popular demand. Each post-revival edition has been accompanied by a photoshop competition to help generate ideas for an upcoming theme. So for each instance below, where applicable I've included a link to the contest which fed into it.





[happy meal] | Wired 17.01 | Prior photoshop contest in 16.10








[cubicle] | Wired 17.02 | Prior photoshop contest in 16.11












[truck stop] | Wired 17.03 | Prior photoshop contest in 16.12







[child safety device] | Wired 17.04 | Prior photoshop contest in 17.01


[Wired 17.05 did not include 'Found'. The corresponding photoshop contest in 17.02 was on the future of magic shows.]







[chewing gum] | Wired 17.06 | Prior photoshop contest in 17.03







[birth control] | Wired 17.07 | Prior photoshop contest in 17.04












[online dating site] | Wired 17.08 | No photoshop contest











[Grow-a-Nanoraptor] | Wired 17.09 | Prior photoshop contest on 'the future of Grow-a-Frog' in 17.06










[rehab center] | Wired 17.10 | Prior photoshop contest in 17.07


[Wired 17.11 did not include 'Found'. The corresponding photoshop contest in 17.08 was on game shows. Likewise for 17.12; the corresponding photoshop contest in 17.09 was on amusement park rides.]

Stand by for the 02010 collection in the new year...
