The Best of #CrimeHeadlinesFrom2025

Technology and science-oriented radio program Science Friday recently discussed the potential for technology to lead to unforeseen consequences, such as futuristic crimes. They challenged their listeners to speculate on where our most dystopian tech could potentially take us, spawning the hashtag #CrimeHeadlinesFrom2025.

 

 

The wonderfully creative answers ran the gamut from driverless cars to designer babies to patented genomes to hackers with a Freudian sense of humor. Here are a few of the best tweets to come out of this delightful hashtag:

The one that has already happened:

 

 

The one where people start to care about environmentalism:

 

 

The one where news headlines still like obvious puns:

 

 

The more things change, the more they stay the same:

Cute:
