Video: The Future Is Ours

Hello guys! We just want to share this video with you. We stumbled upon it this morning and it’s a marvelous find. Watching something like this gives us hope for the future. We are lucky to have people who will do anything to push humanity forward. The video is released by filmmaker Michael Marantz and it’s a rousing two-minute tribute to the people and companies who keep pushing humanity forward. Watch it in full screen, in HD, and with headphones/earphones on. It will be one of the best videos you’ll ever watch.
