If you are interested in designing, business, inventing, or business – you should know what the future may have in store for us…

Not too long ago, I listened to a podcast on whether or not there were still inventions to be thought of in our world today.  The basic understanding of the podcast was that instead of new inventions, the type of inventing for our next few generations is taking a product (such as a computer) and making it smaller, faster, multi-functional, and simpler (e.g. – iPad).  Here’s the next wave of inventions…

This concept video gives a look into the future of technology, infographics, and data visualization.  More specifically, this is what Microsoft Office Labs is supposed to look like by 2019.  With rumors of certain technologies within the video coming out sooner than most people think, this video is not out of reach.

What was once fictitious products, shown in movies like the Harry Potter series, are now coming on the market.  In 2010, LG released the flexible electronic newspaper.

With more and more visual opportunities for businesses and news, combined with the technology that is becoming popular – and accessible – the future of data visualization and infographics is very bright!  The field of medicine is typically the first to implement technology, then it is carried over to the schools over time.  Instead of experimenting with technology when it comes to people’s health, why not first start in the classroom where teams can collaborate to find new and better uses for the implementation of technology!
