Our science fiction isn't always on the nose. 1984 didn't look exactly like 1984, and 2001 didn't bring us the kind of Space Odysseys we envisioned. So forgive us for being skeptical about predictions pegged to dates that haven't been reached yet--the subject of this terrific visualization by Italian designer Giorgia Lupi.
The infographic, illustrated for Brain Pickings, shows predictions for the future, built around science fiction novels, stories, and comics. It's organized by year of publication on one axis and year of the work's prediction on the other. Predictions start at 2012 and go all the way to 802,701.
