This DVD was an unexpected experience for me. I caught part of a program on the cable Science channel discussing the future cars (eg, NextWorld: Future Cars). I was awed by the program, so I decided to search on-line to see when the program would air again or if I could get a DVD of it. To my dismay I couldn't find it scheduled to air, so I checked the Discovery Channel's DVD's for sale, when I searched for "future cars" the "2057/Future Cars" came up instead, but the cost was more than I wanted to spend for something I wasn't sure if I'd like.
So next best thing, check out Amazon for the same video.I didn't know
what to expect when the DVD finally came. I was totally mesmerized when I watched the 2057 (Body. City. World.) and the bonus DVD Future Cars. I was surprised even my husband loved it (since he's usually action packed movies only, this was surprising).
Okay it's NOT a movie, these DVD's are documentaries. They show what brillant minds are working on NOW . . . today . . . and how these technologies can or may be applied in the future to come. Granted, I probably won't be around when the year 2057 arrives, but this is what the youth of today may see in their lifetime.
Being somewhat of a technology addict and fascinated by futuristic ideas, this is a MUST HAVE for anyone who has a similar attraction. With gas prices for cars soaring . . . I REALLY hope I'm around to purchase some of these "Future Cars" >>> hydrogen cars that run on water, leave no harmful emissions just pure drinking water, Norway already has introduced them >>> cars that are electric and plug into your household, may one day give current back to your house to use and even look good!!! and can MOOOOVE, just as fast . . . enter the Tessa ??? >>> cars thar can run on compressed air . . .

I purchased this DVD primarily for the Future Car disc, as it has, among others Luigi Colani, an outside-the-box industrial designer with very organic influences, and a short segment on Syd Mead, the most influential concept designer of the 20th & 21st centuries. I was pleasantly suprised with the amount of info on other designers. The DVD is divided into 4 topics, exteriors, propulsion systems, fuels and miscellanous topics. It's an excellent in-depth coverage of autos(& other vehicles) of the future.

The other DVD, 2058, is also informative and speculates very well on what life might be like in the year 2058. If there is one thing that diminishes this DVD, it's the movie-like segment about the power station in space. Other than that, it's very good.

If you are interested in vehicles of the future and what the world might be like, pick up this 2 disc set.

I already loved 2057 from watching it on my favorite TV channel (The Science Channel). This DVD was exactly what I wanted which was about the ( Future City, Future World & my favorite Future Body & it also had a 4th selection named (Discovery Recommends) with samples of other great shows & or movies. I loved this DVD because I am one of those modern future loving techie/computer geek futurist that will love to have a flying car,talking house(Hal3000) & a Hologram TV like in Minority Report & a wrist video diary like in (Lost In Space) The Movie. I always wanted this dvd in my collection but the Science Channel/Discovery Channel store is out of there mind by way of pricing, they tend to price normal people right from buying there products at prices like $300.00 for some shows which is ridiculous & sad because that will keep schools & people that enjoy educational content which is vanishing from the TV air waves in these past years. But Amazon of course my favorite online Store always are cheaper, more reliable & great quality & affordable. I can't wait to find all the rest of my favorite DVD's,Blue-Ray's & or dvd Set's. Go Buy This DVD you will be totally satisfied.

These two documentaries are one of a kind. That's a good thing, but also a bad thing. The bad part about it is that getting ahold of this is extremely rare. You can't even find commercials about either of these shows online to know about it's existanse due to Discovery pulling the copyright card and forcing any and all that even try to advertise it online via a video of any kind to pull the video. I searched high and low and couldn't so much as find a working video of the previews for this. Such a shame, as it will mean that anyone that doesn't know about these videos will never have the opportunity to. .
