Director Neill Blomkamp has a knack for thinking up new technology, as seen in his debut film District 9, and we're expecting to see even more of it in the upcoming Elysium. Yahoo! has debuted this featurette for the film going behind the scenes of the new technology as seen in the film's world.

Arriving in conventional and IMAX theaters on August 9, Elysium stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, William Fichtner and Wagner Moura.

In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined planet. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission one that pits him against Elysium's Secretary Delacourt (Foster) and her hard-line forces but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.
