Black Mirror is a British science fiction anthology series set in alternate or near-future times.
Each episode of Black Mirror is its own separate story. Typically an episode of the show takes either a current, or near-future technology, and uses it in a negative manner in order to create a dark, and sometimes dystopian story.
Black Mirror typically features one current or near-future technology per episode, some of them include:
- Memory Augmentation - One episode features a brain implant that is able to allow its user the ability to never forget.
Other current and future tech used in a negative light
- Surveillance technology.
- Virtual Reality
In response to Black Mirror's pessimistic outlook on technology, it was reported that a group wishes to create a more utopian/techno-optimist version of the series.
