Technology empowers new ways of life. The discarded materials of our modern lives find new purposes thanks to brilliant inventions. Diesel fumes become ink, cosmetics become watercolors, chewing-gum takes all sort of new forms… Technology can also save lives.

A simple Morse-code-like apparatus embedded in a shoe can help you text for help if you are stuck on a construction site; deciphering earth geomagnetic variations could very well reveal the way to accurately predict earthquakes; and building origami skyscrapers could be a solution to quickly erect housing and hospitals on war zones.

Technology even takes up to the skies. Drones of all shapes buzz in increasing numbers over our heads. Inventors always shoot to the stars. Sometimes quite literally. Even sports cannot outrace technology. Motion capture and AI ace the tennis’ championship as football comes alive with VR on your tabletop. Progress has an infinite stamina, and nothing can stop its momentum. Who might have foreseen the importance of the internet? Our cellphones? The selfie sticks? These widgets might sound inconsequential, but amidst all those avant-garde contraptions might hide the seeds of a bright and technological future.
