What will the future hold? That’s the question Smart recently put to the Twittersphere. The answers were penned onto a Smart Car on the Smart Urban Stage in London by illustrator Johanna Basford. Basford had to come up with illustrations of every future suggested, from dog-walking robots to hover beds to commuter roller coasters. “It seems a lot of people were concerned with how we’d all get from A to B in future,” Basford told Wired UK.

Check out the video of Basford working live to pen Tweet-inspired futures onto the car. Humans living in space, a complete shift to renewable energy, and a unicorn winning a marathon were just a few of the challenges in this fast-moving green art project.
