A forward thinking tumblr shows us signs from the future. Designer Fernando Barbella's blog 'Signs of the Near Future' showcases the technology we may one day have and the public signs that would exist in a dystopian future. While many would think these imagined technological advances would better society down the road, the blogger has a more pessimistic view.

From existing elements like drones and selfies to brain hijacking and synthetic burger discounts, these signs from the future cover a variety of topics. By combining familiar public spaces like elevators and airport security, the signs incorporate futuristic pieces seamlessly. While a little on the dark side, road signs for driverless cars also add a sense of humor to the photography based tumblr.
