CHICAGO (September 14, 2010) – Chicago Public Media (WBEZ 91.5 FM) continues its Off-Air Series with Mutants, Androids, and Cyborgs: The Science of Pop Culture Films at the Ryan Family Auditorium, Technological Institute, Northwestern University, 2145 Sheridan Road, on Wednesday, October 20 at 7:00pm.
Throughout history, fiction has made some bold predictions about future technology. In 1870, Jules Verne imagined the now-commonplace fax machine, but H. G. Wells’ 1895 visions of time travel have yet to pan out. Focusing on nanotechnology, robotics, prosthetics, and neuroscience, Mutants, Androids and Cyborgs will seek to answer, "What science of tomorrow can we look forward to by viewing the films of today?"
