From our DNA to the cosmos, from our planet to our desks, our futures will be mapped by the objects we use and the people who build them. 'The Future Starts Here' examines the cutting edge of technology and how it shapes our everyday lives. Looking at real objects being developed today - including a UAV (or drone) built by Facebook to beam the internet down from space, and a robot developed by UC Berkeley that will do the laundry - expert authors show how design and technology impact every level of life, from sub-microscopic aspects of the human body to the entire planet. The staggering developments featured here are all happening now, and we all have a say in how they will shape our future.
