The servo recycled food robot gets on the wrong side of Stallone’s Dredd. He has no desire to insert some creds. Underneath the glossy(ish) veneer of automated vending he finds a human. A hacker no less who amongst other things has previous for interfering with cash machines, so they are still around in 2139. A cashless society is clearly a way off.
A couple of interesting little future money displays in this needless remake. An interesting First Bank ATM shows off its fancy UI while Harry tries to give Quaid some life advice.
Secondly the cash in the biometrical safety deposit box features President Obama on the Federation of Britain 50 note. The 1000 note features the directors father.
The death benefit disks are seemingly one of the the most valuable forms of currency. Exchangeable for either 200 D’s in cash or 250 D’s in food coupons. You can then buy some tasty Soylent Crumbs for just 2 D’s a bag. Although the rich bodyguards seem to be buying jars of strawberries for 150 D’s a pop. Some people are just made of money…some food is just made of…
I am not sure of the name of the currency other than just D’s. If anyone can enlighten me that would be lovely.
Artificial intelligence (2001)
‘Question me you pay the fee, two for five you get one free.’
Two questions for Dr. Know cost 5 new bucks with a third on the house. Ten new bucks and a ten copper = seven questions for David as he tries to find out who the Blue Fairy is.
Another cab fare. This time it is Biff Tannen getting stung for a large fare and paying with just his thumb. Biometric ID is all the rage in cabs in 2015 apparently. As are parrots.
Arnie awakes in a daze in the back of a cab. He pays the fare with a simple touch of his thumb on the touchscreen taxi meter. He does not even blink at the exorbitant fee. He must be used to surge pricing for Hollywood superstars.
