Last year we made a visual overview of +200 future predictions. This list is being used in our innovation workshops & training to inspire people. So far, the feedback on this poster was great. But it’s time to review our list and see if there was any progress.
018 - The end of ecryption & passwords
One of the hot topics in the tech industry lately is the full frontal attack of the FBI on the encryption policy of Apple. This debate has not been settled yet. But we can expect that this ‘precedent’ will have a significant impact on how we look at encryption.
021 - Rating your friends
Someone really assumed this was a good idea and launched “the yelp for people”, to rate your peers & contacts. This startup faced a huge backlash at the end of 2015 and had to remove some features. The app launched a couple of days ago. Keep an eye on Peeple to if they can manage to pull this off.
022 - Ban on disposable packaging
028 - Real time virtual video make-up
033 - branding support for individuals
The first service agency’s that target Youtube/Vine/Snapchat stars are popping up.
044 - Behaviour triggers + 1000 payments/day
060 - In-house air-cleaning robots
075 - Enhanced eyes with lie detections
079 - Anti-conception on-off switch
A German research team has created a semen-valve to give men a real on-off switch. For the moment this device still costs +$5K and it is not an instant switch. (could take 30 days). Give it a couple of years. We’re almost there!
172 - Jail-sentence on disposable food waste
France is leading here and Italy is taking the first steps. It becomes illegal for large supermarkets to throw away unsold food.
