NZME's prescient tech predictions

Earlier this week, NZME took an entertaining trip back into the mists of time as part of its ad:tech sponsorship. Now some more 'found footage' from '1987' has emerged, and it shows 'Matt Harrington', editor of 'Bits and Bytes' magazine, "walking the streets of the future in an interactive 3D hologram". 

And the winner of the 1987 Mitsubishi Mirage (and tickets to ad:tech Sydney) is... Phil Shacklady from ANZ New Zealand! Congratulations Phil! Check out the third and final instalment of the footage from ad:tech 1987 - Matt goes into the future! #adtechnz #NZME #Mirage #Winning

Who needs Back to the Future 2 when you've got soothsaying like this? Now NZME will be hoping that its actual predictions about the future of media come true. 

NZME also announced Phil Shacklady from ANZ as the winner of the 'car of the future' (AKA a 1987 Mitsubishi Mirage) and a ticket to next year's ad:tech conference in Sydney. 

And for those who couldn't be there, here's a clip of some of the attendees' highlights.
