Tomorrow's world: Visions of the future
'Sense and the City: smart, connected and on the move' opens this Friday.
It explores visions of the future from the past and present, and looks at how new tools such as GPS, open source data, augmented reality, smart phones and the internet are changing the way we live, work and play.
The exhibition opens with a futurist vision by artist Syd Meads (who has worked on films including Bladerunner, Aliens and Tron) and a selection of images
showing past visions of the future - including those by Le Corbusier and Archigram featuring spiral escalators, winged buses and even taxi airships.
Visitors will also be able to see the infamous Sinclair C5 and the RYNO - a self-balancing, one wheel, electric scooter.
Displays will look at the development of technology and how it has become such an integral part of day-to-day life.
A retro technology wall will show early examples of futuristic gadgets including 1980s brick-sized mobile phones, Commodore computers and the earliest wireless devices.
Visitors to the exhibition will also be able to view and give their opinions on a wealth of video, animations, data visualisations and images on subjects ranging from cashless society and driverless cars, to reactive buildings.
Other highlights include the 'visions of tomorrow' wall - created by students from the Royal College of Art - which shows how we may move and communicate in 2020.
