Uplifting Sci-Fi Or Horror Movie? Decide After Watching Video Shared By Anand Mahindra


Screengrab from a video shared on Twitter by Anand Mahindra.

Anand Mahindra’s latest Twitter video – a clip from British television series Years and Years – has sparked an interesting discussion around the possibilities, perks and potential repercussions of future technology. Years and Years is a time-hopping television series that has invited comparisons with Black Mirror for its depictions of future technology.

In one episode of the series, a character gets a phone implanted in her hand so she can make and receive calls by simply bringing her hand to her ear. In the clip extracted from that episode which was shared by Anand Mahindra, the character was shown demonstrating to a friend how a microchip turned her hand into a phone. Whether that sounds like a horror story or an intriguing possibility of the future depends on your age and outlook, wrote Mr Mahindra.

The Chairman of Mahindra Group shared the clip from the TV show on Twitter this morning and wrote: “Depending on your age & outlook, this clip is either an uplifting sci-fi story or a horror movie.”

“When your hand becomes the phone, what does your brain become??” he asked.

The video has collected nearly 25,000 views and 600 ‘likes’ on the microblogging platform. In the comments section, people debated the pros and cons of cutting edge technology.

Anand Mahindra is an active Twitter user with a following of over 8 million on the microblogging platform, where he regularly shares interesting videos and informative tidbits. Earlier this month, he had shared a photograph of a man bowing before a Mumbai local train.
