See what It's Nice That picked as part of the O2 Future Predictions project

Posted by Rob Alderson,

This may be my memory playing tricks on me, but I seem to remember Blue Peter burying time capsules willy-nilly in my youth. The thing is I never remember them being dug up – as and when BBC Television Centre is sold and bulldozed they’re likely to unearth any number of boxes meant to capture a certain snapshot of our past. That’s kind of the problem with time capsules – people get excited about putting them together and basically forget about them, but the clever folk at O2 have found a way round that. For their new project Future Timeline Predictions, they asked a group of bloggers from the worlds of fashion, film, music, football and our very own founder Will Hudson to curate a time capsule of objects they believe will be significant in just six months’ time. Will picked a Rasberry Pi, some magazines and a sculpture by Steven Harrington as part of his selection and you can see him and the others involved discuss the project in this promo video. No pressure Will, but we won’t forget about this one…
