Meet Futurate

Your one-stop-shop for all things future..

“Futurate” (uncountable, grammar) by definition means a sentence with no obvious means of future reference which nonetheless conveys that a future-oriented eventuality is planned, scheduled or otherwise determined. In English, typically this refers to present-tense verbs such as 'Spring starts next month.' This perfectly embodies our mission as the future literally starts now, even when not expressly stated.

“Your future is what you make it.”
Doc Brown, Back to the Future III (1990)

..and yes, you can make it better, ideally with a little help from friends like Futurate.
