Description

What would happen if the world’s financial systems collapsed tomorrow?

Ever thought about how earth will look in 200 years?

Monzo is building a bank for the 21st century, and we’re not alone in our pursuit of a smarter future. From medicine to entertainment, scientific and technological innovation continues to transform the way we interact with the world around us.

We’ve invited some amazing makers, thinkers and scientists to share their unique vision of how technology could change our lives (for better and for worse!) in years to come.

None of us really know what the future holds. But our guest speakers have some ideas guaranteed to get you thinking. Some exciting, some mind boggling, some shocking - all possible. Grab a ticket and join the conversation!

Outrospectre - Simulating an Out-of-body Experience

Designer Frank Kolkman has created a VR experience which simulates the experience of dying. In this talk, he explains the research and rationale behind his project Outrospectre, and explores how new computer technologies can help address psychological issues, such as fear of mortality.

Colonies in Space

Is a planetary surface the best way for technological civilisation to flourish?

Back in the 1970s designs were produced for huge space colonies, constructed using the technology of that period, which could ultimately house millions of people.

Leader of the SPACE project Jerry Stone, offers an insight into the ongoing project to re-examine and update these studies and proposals for the 21st century.
