logan as futurism

The movie Logan provides one of the most compelling visions of the future landscape of America. Aside from the usual sci-fi gizmos--enhanced humans, wonder drugs, extreme experimentation on humans--the basic vision is quite believable. The two main items that stand out are automated trucks and agricultural equipment. These things are in development right now, and the latter stands a good chance of being implemented within the timeframe of the movie.

What's also noteworthy is what does not change: People still drive cars, go to convenience stores, eat corn flakes, and get spied on by drones.
