If these technologies tell us anything about the future, it’s that nothing is ever truly impossible. We’ve taken pages out of the incredible past works of sci-fi literature and used them as models to what we need to develop next. Before these last few short years, the idea of producing meat without animals, or to explore in deep space, or to 3D print bone models were purely speculative fiction. Today they’re a common topic of conversation, from scientists to the general public. Welcome to the future!
In The Future This Week, Serious Wonder 3D prints a magnifying glass in search of this week’s headlines of the future, from 3D printed bone models to lab grown in-vitro meat production. This week we’re given a look at what is to come in the next decade or so which will change everything we’ve come to accept – from space travel, to meat production, to our very own brain.
