5 Minutes into the Future - Vol 1.1 - Photosheet


Horizon scanning real tech for your game

What is Five Minutes into the Future? (5MF)

5MF are a series of short guides scanning the horizon for cutting edge technologies being developed in the real-world right now. Each issue will present one piece of nu-tech and some ways that you can use it in your roleplaying games.

THIS ISSUE; Volume 1.1 features the Photosheet, a wireless sheet which turns water, sunlight and carbon dioxide into clean fuel.

5MF is largely system neutral, and presents ideas suitable for a variety of modern and near future genres, including:


  • heist, 
  • espionage, 

  • technoir, 

  • near future, 

  • superhero, 

  • cyberpunk, 

  • modern horror, 

  • hard sci-fi, and

  • (post)-apocalyptic.

Finally, I finish each guide with just a little bit of crunch so you can use the technology (with rules and related character options) in a handful of popular, different systems including;

  • Fate,
  • Powered by the Apocalypse, and
  • D20 modern systems. 

Join us Five Minutes into the Future and see what your game could be like!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
