In 2047 The Last Beautician

25m | Mar 6, 2023

A future where robots replace human hair stylists, causing many salons to close down. New autonomous robot-operated hair salons open, offering a wide range of beauty services. Lynx, a stylist featured on The Ultimate Makeover Challenge, becomes one of the famous beauticians cloned through deep learning and available for selection on kiosk screens. In the fourth year, Lynx's contract with Biotic is completed, and she struggles to find work without being recorded by robots.

Many of the characters in this project appear in future episodes.

Using storytelling to place you in a time period, this series takes you, year by year, into the future. From 2040 to 2195. If you like emerging tech, eco-tech, futurism, perma-culture, apocalyptic survival scenarios, and disruptive science, sit back and enjoy short stories that showcase my research into how the future may play out.

This is Episode 26 of the podcast "In 20xx Scifi and Futurism." The companion site is where you can find a timeline of the future, descriptions of future development, and printed fiction.
