How will we be affected by this new world in which brain-computer interfaces, vat-grown cruelty-free meat, knitted cars and guided bullets are all predicted. It is a world that will see vast changes in food production, healthcare, energy production, manufacturing and military balance and one that will have a profound impact on the way we live and work.
