Welcome to Meta Olympia, a unique media property that provides a glimpse into the future through the sports and athletes of tomorrow.
Co-created by Chris Cheung and Bing Lin; decades of experience in high-tech, creative communities, and innovation culminated into a timely project that intersected genres, interests and talent that takes form in traditional ‘daily news’ format.
In a world where reality can be ridiculous, with endless worries and on the cusp of great and terrible things all the time, Meta Olympia seeks to design a framework where journalists, artists and creators can report on a future where ‘we’ve made it’… and the game plays on.
This is a platform that predicts and play-outs a vision of tomorrow. Unlike most stories that are plot-driven, Meta Olympia is defined by rules that drive simulators that generate non-deterministic outcomes. Where a movie or story can be created and enjoyed in discrete single serving formats, our world is deliberately everyday… our editorial clock runs parallel and in sync with the 60-year forward clock. We believe this will transform how people look at science and culture today.

Press & Feedback
2017/09/09 – The Game of Nerds
" It is in the truest sense a spectator driven property."
"Who knows, one day this could be the way we consume all digital media, through real time world building sims bringing us that much closer to the future of humanity and civilization."

I'm still blown away by the levels of intricacy that is involved with this... it's a shit-ton of work.
"We've heard and read and seen all the stories about Mars... so why not take a look at the future colonization of Mars, through the framing of following your favourite sports team?"
"I find this very interesting, fascinating that the sport itself is dictating where the story is going and not the other way around."
