This Week in the Future, April 9-13, 2012

There’s already Angry Birds in space–why not Fruit Ninja in space? At least, that’s the thesis put forth (probably; I’m not an art critic) by Baarbarian in this week’s This Week in the Future illustration. While you ponder the significance of the precise arrangement and variety of sliced fruit, we’ll take this opportunity to wish you a good weekend.

Want to win this sliced Baarbarian illustration on a T-shirt? It’s easy! The rules: Follow us on Twitter (we’re @PopSci) and retweet our This Week in the Future tweet. One of those lucky retweeters will be chosen to receive a custom T-shirt with this week’s Baarbarian illustration on it, thus making the winner the envy of their friends, coworkers and everyone else with eyes. (Those who would rather not leave things to chance and just pony up some cash for the t-shirt can do that here.) The stories pictured herein:
