Iron Man: Hypervelocity
Anyway, there's a bunch more stuff out there like Hypervelocity that is extremely cyberpunk but no longer labeled as such, and I'll tell you about it as soon as I remember the names....
Thanks. I've been uncovering more movies that are cyberpunk that aren't listed on any of the cyberpunk websites/wiki's or w/e that you get from a google search. Hopefully I can find some more graphic novels the same way.
Like, for the 20's and 30's , Cars were the insane future steampunk, in the 70's computer tech and crazy early robotics combined with scavenger tech. give it another 20 years and who knows, maybe Teleporters, Light speed , and Replication will all be considered old and cyberpunk.
Maybe Star Trek is secretly cyberpunk from the future!
@ Incenjucar, You could look at cyberpunk through the miocpic, infant stage perspective of the 80's where Bill Gates said you'll never need a hard drive larger than a MB, or you can look at the evolved mindset of cyberpunk.
The fact remains that a true artificial sentience has not been created, robotics so seemless that they could be mistaken for humans have not been created, cybrnetic appendages that ENHANCE the human body or jacks that input you into a VR have not been created.
Cyberpunk ideologies of the 80's? Sure. Maybe not the replicants other various tech, but the ideologies sure. Current cyberpunk ideologies such as transhumanism? Not even close.
But anyway I think that sci-fi with the theme of cyberpunk has died away because it rails against something which is no longer there or at least not in an obvious manner.
