Welcome to the age of instant learning. See how augmented reality made it possible:

  • In reality, tools like CRISPR are allowing us to make welcome advances in fields like advanced materials and medicine.
  • Synthego has now brought the gene-editing tool to the masses, allowing us to build a world that’s a little more Iron Man and a little less Gattaca.

Technologies that once only existed in science fiction are showing up in our homes, cars, and workplaces. Here’s to the new possible.

@futurism: Welcome to the age of instant learning. See how augmented reality made it possible:

We are living in the most transformative period of human history. Technologies that once only existed in science fiction are beginning to show up in our homes, cars, and workplaces. We traveled across the country to meet eight companies who are rewriting the rules of what’s possible. Here are their stories.

The super soldiers of sci-fi series like Doctor Who owe their ostensible immortality to super materials that have been impossible until now. Just north of San Francisco, a company called Graphene Technologies has found a way to harness the power of pure carbon to transform the building blocks of our world. Learn why our cars and homes will never be the same.

When we think of genetic modification, our imaginations often paint a dystopian portrait of the future. In reality, tools like CRISPR are allowing us to make welcome advances in fields like advanced materials and medicine. Synthego has now brought the gene-editing tool to the masses, allowing us to build a world that’s a little more Iron Man and a little less Gattaca. Take a look.
