Tech trauma: All forms of tech­nol­ogy The story: A se­ries of stand­alone episodes, all fin­gers point to one thing: the ter­ri­fy­ing fu­ture of tech­nol­ogy. From bring­ing back the dead by up­load­ing his so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties into a hu­manoid (Be Right Back), surveil­lance bee drones that kill de­pend­ing on Twit­ter #hash­tag pop­u­lar­ity (Hated in the Na­tion), to mod­ern-day para­noia of get­ting a five-star so­ci­etal rat­ing (Nose­dive).

Fact or fic­tion? Look­ing at the rate at which tech­nol­ogy is grow­ing, we think this is an in­evitable fact.
