Meet Yourself 20 Years in the Future

European telecommunications company Orange partnered with Paris-based advertising agency Publicis Conseil and Toronto-based digital design agency Jam3 to create a surreal digital experience that allows users to speak with a simulated version of themselves 20 years in the future. The result, which is part of Orange’s 20th anniversary #futureself campaign, uses a combination of aging simulation and 3D rendering technologies to essentially allow folks to question their future selves.

Talk to your future self.
