A dazzling new exhibition called Futures opens today in the long-closed Arts and Industries Building in Washington D.C., bringing together more than 150 objects, ideas, and inventions that invite visitors to imagine what lies ahead. The show is punctuated by a dozen “beacons”—large, LED screens that visitors interact with using hand gestures, a la Tom Cruise in Minority Report. Part game, part psychological experiment, these beacons help visitors navigate a series of prompts like “How hopeful are you that the world in 2030 will be more efficient than it is today?” or “When do you think the world might produce its last barrel of oil?”

These questions were developed by the Institute for the Future, a nonprofit think tank that helps organizations plan for the long-term future. According to game designer and futurist Jane McGonigal, the experience is like playing a game. “When you play a game, you get to make choices, and the choices you make affect the outcome of the game,” she says. Take a look inside the exhibition and read my story here.
