In this fascinating guide, Christopher Barnatt examines 25 known challenges and technologies that will shape the next few decades. From Peak Water to vertical farms, from nanotechnology to augmented reality and from electric cars to space travel, Barnatt paints a startling picture of future possibilities that no individual or business will be able to ignore. 25 Things You Need to Know About the Future includes sections on: The End of the Age of Plenty, The Next Industrial Wave, Fuelling the Third Millennium, Computing and; Inorganic Life and Humanity 2.0, covering such topics as climate change, food shortages, 3D printing and nano-technology, kinetic power, cloud computing and cybernetic enhancement.
