    It also appears in this film, made by the Zeitgeist movement:

    Yeah Jacque Fresco has done a brilliant design.

    No, it appears in the 2nd film, Zeitgeist Addendum.

    Wondered how long it would take this to get on here. Get ready for some serious love and abuse in equal measures ;-)

    Hopefully people on here will appreciate the value of efficient design, even if they disagree with the VP philosophy.

    Sorry, you're right StuLuminos. The first movie is also worth a look too however.

    I think the films' rather sweeping yet efficient analysis of the global economic system is worth a thought in or two, especially in the light(?) of a world wide recession.

    I feel Fresco would have been before his time if we were in the 1950's... His ideas and designs seem retrofuturistic to me.

    while they are "retrofuturistic" , the core of his doctrine is a good basis for the redevelopment of our social structure, and distribution of resources. The first step would be documenting our planetary resources as a whole. I think that would get the ball rolling onto bigger ideas of conservation and use.

    Sounds like a good X-Prize initiative to me.

    Steven you are correct,this idea is of most importance,it's a forward concept and an enlightening one too.

    Never mind the "retrofuturistic" aspect, the core ideals on resources and concentrated design are the main focuses here.
