Intel's 'futurist' Brian David Johnson said that "The Tomorrow Project" was designed to engage in "ongoing discussions with superstars, science fiction authors and scientists to get their visions for the world that's coming and the world they'd like to build."

A collection of stories has been combined into an anthology featuring science-fiction authors Douglas Rushkoff, Ray Hammond, Scarlett Thomas and Markus Heitz. The Tomorrow Project anthology is available for free download.

"What science fiction does is give us a way to think about the implications of the technologies that we're building, for the people who will actually be using them," said Johnson.
