The coming decades will bring exciting innovation, but can we predict future technology?
The development of technology is an essential part of human life and has been used to change the world we live in. But the uncertainty of what technology will look like in the future can be daunting.
In just over 100 years, we have come from inventing the first ever electric vacuum cleaner, to controlling a robotic vacuum, from your phone, through the Internet of Things. 130 years ago Carl Benz invented the first automobile, now we have driverless cars. The possibilities are endless and we can only begin to imagine where future advances in technology will take us.
We think that the technology of tomorrow will develop from what we see today. But the truth is that it will always exceed the capabilities of our imagination and it is the minds of today that will shape the future innovations of tomorrow.
If only we had a way to look into the future and see what awaits us. We don’t have a 1955 DeLorean to hand, but we do have this time machine. Jump in and see where it takes you.

Product manufacturers gather more data about you than ever. What used to be called Big Data is now here. Products are made to match your exact specifications and finished goods delivered to you by whatever means you choose.
Highly efficient organisations utilising intelligent M2M with smart sensors make it all possible.
Manufacturing has changed. Industry 4.0 became simply “Industry” and digitisation and big data allow smart factories to be massively more cost efficient than of old.
Today’s highly advanced Automotive plants, for instance, create a single variation of body style, dashboard, seat finish and more, to order, in minutes. And doing so is as efficient as producing many.
