  2. It’s the year 2045… Wearables work in synergy with devices

    embedded in our environment Smart textiles assume the texture and appearance of any material Miniaturized projection-based displays allow the construction of focus-sensing VRDs Thermal scanners and camera-vision systems make every surface interactive Wearable kinaesthetic and affective sensors read our movements and our emotions Handheld devices use flexible displays and can `cast’ content on to the environment  
  3. Visualization in 2045… Mixed and Augmented Reality display systems enable

    us to visualize complex datasets in new ways Depth-sensing cameras register computer generated objects and visualizations seamlessly in our surroundings Visualizations can be ‘cast’ on our environment, or on complementary devices Body-worn sensory modalities collect data constantly, about our daily activities AI-driven Brain Machine Interfaces collect and classify our thoughts and dreams
