We're thrilled to share these stunning aerial shots of the famed Italian Carrara Marble mines by Munich Germany-based photographer Bernhard Lang. At first glance, your eyes may lean towards a more futuristic subject rather than the creamy white stone that dates back to the Roman Empire. The prized Carrara Marble mines are located in you guessed it, a city named Carrara in Italy's Apuan Alps in Northern Tuscany where more marble has been produced than any other place on earth.
One of the coolest things about science fiction is weapon design. Along the years we've seen some pretty badass weapons, like the flamethrower Ripley used in Alien, or even the classic pistol used by Deckard in Blade Runner. I've searched for some cool concepts of futuristic weapons to show you. These were done by some very creative designers. I'd love to use them in some FPS, like Destiny. For more of their work, all you have to do is to click each image. Also, tell us which is your favorite design! Mine is definitely the "Sci-fi rifle" design by Lei Guo.
We've seen some pretty dope examples of futuristic military in movies like District 9 and yet-to-open Chappie. Some super amazing armors, guns and gear, in a vision of a future where technology is super advanced and warfare has evolved. Minovo Wang, a Chinese concept artist comes up with his own vision of futuristic warfare, and it's super badass. Here you can see some of his artworks. For more of it, please visit his portfolio at ArtStation. I hope you enjoy these! Cheers. ;)
We've seen a lot of medieval fantasy illustrations here at Abduzeedo, but one other kind of awesome fantasy illustration I like is futuristic! It's awesome to see the many ideas of future that artists come up with... huge technological cities, filled with ultra-high buildings and flying cars, some looking very friendly, others looking oppressive. Here you can see pieces by many great artists. Their visions are simply amazing and for more of their work, please visit their portfolios simply by clicking each image.

It's very hard to imagine how our cities and landscapes will look in the future, but on this post you can get a taste of what may be coming in a long future. There artists have enough imaginations and skills to create their own view of the future.
