Commonwealth Bank’s 2013 Vision

Monty Hamilton pointed out that comments have been disabled on the Commonwealth Bank’s 2013 Vision video. Yet they allowed the embed code. So I thought I’d drop the video in here and get your feedback.

I was immediately struck by how little social interaction took place in the lives of the featured couple. I was amazed that there was no understanding of the way that technology is being used not for its own sake (or for economic/transactional productivity), but to connect with others, to exercise social judgement (especially around purchasing decisions) or to coordinate and maximise the social time we have available to us in our otherwise busy lives. There were some nice touches, and perhaps the best use of a Microsoft Surface that I have seen. 

But how does this map to your vision of the future three years from now?
