Watch: ‘Welcome to Life’ Imagines Better Living Through Technology as Ruined By Lawyers

By  · Published on May 21st, 2012

Why Watch? Last year’s Transcendent Man dealt with Ray Kurzweil and the possible future where human life is extended thanks to computer memory, The Cloud and our own egos.

In Tom Scott’s new short, we find that death might be preferable once the lawyers have taken over. It’s straightforward sci-fi that pulls off the storytelling magic of placing you at the center of it – a movie that directs its attention to you and manages to nail down a universal humor. You’re dead. Now what?

What will it cost? Only 5 minutes.
