Imagine a world where urbanization and a desire for healthy living result
in next-level products like pockets embedded with a silver-based,
antimicrobial nanotextile that sanitizes your hands on the go, or pots and pans that broadcast your every pancake flip and soup stir, or a rewards card that measures your credibility and trust for the sharing economy.

The Coming Era of Mega Systems, Part 1 – Transportation | Impact Lab

The Coming Era of Mega Systems, Part 1 – Transportation | Impact Lab | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

Futurist Thomas Frey - 

Ground transportation is on the verge of major transformation.

Emerging technologies ranging from driverless cars and trucks, to ultra high-speed rail, and vacuum tube transportation networks are all creating an urgent need for a global solution.

Without something similar to the ICAO, it’s easy to envision three separate approaches to bridging the Bering Strait and the Darian Gap, one for roads, one for rail, and one for future tube transportation.

Rather than forcing three colossal bridge/tunnel projects to be built across environmentally sensitive areas, a single, all-inclusive approach would be far better.

For each of these current disconnects, and there are far more than the two that I’ve mentioned, it’s not a matter of “if” they will be built, but “when.” Here’s why.

Verandering van tijdperk - Æneas, Uitgeverij van Vakinformatie

Verandering van tijdperk - Æneas, Uitgeverij van Vakinformatie | Futurewaves | Scoop.it

Nederland zal de komende decennia transformeren naar een nieuwe samenleving waarin de machtsverhoudingen zoals we die nu kennen radicaal zijn omgegooid. Dit is geen idealistisch vergezicht, maar de onontkoombare uitkomst van de kantelperiode waarin Nederland zich nu bevindt. In 'Verandering van tijdperk', het vervolg op de bestseller‘In het oog van de orkaan’, beschrijft Jan Rotmans ook de nieuwe sectoren onderwijs en financiën en geeft daarmee een compleet beeld van Nederland in transitie. Rode draad is dat alle maatschappelijke sectoren hun houdbaarheidsdatum naderen, omdat de mens niet langer centraal staat. Mensen ontwikkelen zelf alternatieven en voeren die uit. Samen vormen zij de beweging van onderop, essentieel voor de transitie naar een beter aangepaste samenleving en economie.
