Robots, drones, robotic cars, domestically hacked plants, supercomputers on the wrist, sensors on everything, crowdsourcing, solar cells in the road surface and 3D printers for home use.
This is just a small selection of the technological buzzwords which at the moment are all around us and which individually and collectively have the potential to transform our lives and the entire world.
As an engineer or technologist, there is nothing more important than the technology of the future which is the reason for this network: IDA Future Technology.
Join the network and keep yourself well informed on the technological fronts. Learn from your colleague. Listen to the most visionary speakers. Share your knowledge and help to contribute.
