But they soon realize this technology may come at a higher cost.For first-time parents Wanda and Zach, Future Families is a lifetime opportunity: a virtual childcare system that gives their baby access to a better life. Sponsored by the company where Wanda works, this technology allows her to leave her son connected to a virtual version of herself while she works additional hours. The possibilities are endless: the baby can learn anything that Artificial Intelligence teaches him, has medical support and is always taken care of by the virtual mother. Who hasn’t believed that technology would make their lives easier—only to find there’s often a downside? Wanda will soon realize that her company has a secret agenda, and this technology may come at a higher cost.For more about the filmmaker:https://twitter.com/valonsoberbel For more about the USC School of Cinematic Arts:https://www.facebook.com/USCCinema/ https://twitter.com/USCCinemaDUST: Binge-watchable Sci-fiDUST is the first multi-platform destination for binge watchable sci-fi.

    I cannot even with her boss! She recommends the program, but doesn't even use it.
    Not to mention the poor leadership.. If you ask your employees to stay late, you should stay late too.

    The fact that she took the baby from the father to put him back in the machine. Like girl, don’t you want to spend time with your baby?

    I am glad that the father was showing second thoughts toward the end at least. Dads are a part of nurturing too.

    I am in tears. Thank God this does not exist. I would never ever do it even of it existed. I love my baby to death. I dont care if he speaks 6 10 or 200 languages or he gets the best grades. I will provide him myself with the best education I can and encourage him to pursue what he wants to do in life but I would never give him up to no robotic madness for nothing in this world. What scares me is that at the pace that human "technology" is developing this could be a thing in 20 or 50 years and we could really feel compelled to live our babies with sòme kind of android babysitters or connect them with some virtual reality shit "for their own good". If this is what we are doomed to become then I hope I die before I see it. Look they already made virtual reality. You can visit places, meet people, make yoga lessons and shit all in this virtual reality that does not exist. I am very scared for what we are becoming
