 “How We’ll Learn To Stop Worrying And Love The Future,” is not some new age lecture on how meditation will transform your fear into love. Nor is it the secret to prosperity, happiness and health. However, the documentary, created by BMW, is described as a holistic look into the opportunities and challenges of our future world.

“How We’ll Learn To Stop Worrying…” is the fourth and final chapter of BMW Documentaries’ Wherever You Want To Go, a web series that, according to BMW, features “some of the most influential scientists, academics, pioneers and entrepreneurs of our time offering a unique picture of technology, culture, cities, our past, present and how it all relates to the future of mobility.” The series was inspired by the launch of the BMW ActiveE, an electric vehicle based on a BMW 1 Series Coupe that will use electric motor and battery cell technology.

In the final segment, experts are asked: what is your dream transportation? The responses, ranging from mono-wheeled, gyroscopically balanced vehicles, adaptive automobiles that “breathe” to teleportation devices–bring home the message that the future of mobility is trending towards the personal.

Respondents look like the Who’s Who list from MIT Media Lab. The fabulously diverse audience includes: Wired Editor-In-Chief Chris Anderson; Astronaut Buzz Aldrin; Futurist and conceptual designer for Blade Runner, Aliens and Tron, Syd Mead; Google VP Marissa Mayer; Zip Car Founder Robin Chase; Treehugger.com Founder Graham Hill; Ridelust.com Editor-in-Chief Mike Musto; Reinventing the Automobile Co-Author Lawrence Burns; BMW DesignWorks USA President Laurenz Shaffer; MIT Sloan Director of Automotive Professor Wai Chang; and Virgin Galactic President & CEO George Whitesides.

Says BMW: “The film posits that we are all at the forefront of a transportation revolution and that the future of mobility has not been this exciting since the transition from the horse and buggy to automobiles. This next phase of mobility will surely affect everyone including automotive owners, drivers, renters, riders and enthusiasts, and will therefore necessitate a global cooperative effort to embrace change. Individual vs. mass mobility and car ownership vs. car sharing will be among the many personal choices we will have to make in the future.”

They say that great minds think alike. Test out your mind and check out the videos and discussion on BMWACTIVATETHEFUTURE.com.
