The future is clear: enter Idealog's sci-fi short story competition for a chance to win a Blunt umbrella (and widespread admiration)

As part of our recently published Technology Issue, 'Reality Check' – and inspired by Wired's recent fiction issue – we asked some talented friends of the Idealog family to examine the role technology could play in the future and created a special 20-page fiction section that was printed on beautiful Renoir paper supplied by B&F Papers. To add a technological element to these stories, we asked Booktrack, a New Zealand-born AI company that creates movie-style soundtracks for audiobooks, to help us out (to listen to all four stories and their soundtracks, mash your pointing device here). We will be publishing one of these stories online every week as part of Technology Month. But we enjoyed the stories in print so much, we wanted to ask our readers for some of theirs.
