Visions of the Future: How the Future has changed
Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, imagining the technology of the future has been a popular genre. Science fiction has developed as science fact has developed.
Some of the things which we imagined have come true, whereas other ideas will never come to fruition. In this gallery you will be able to take a look at the changing face of our future!
Jetman Dubai Formation Flight
Armed with unguarded ambition and the vision to push boundaries beyond the unthinkable, Jetman Dubai and Emirates A380 take to the skies of Dubai for an exceptional formation flight.
World's First Passenger Drone
Chinese manufacturer Ehang has unveiled the world's first passenger-carrying drone, which will function as a pilotless aerial vehicle.
The 184's body is composed of a fibre-epoxy composite, while the frame and arms are made from aluminium alloy. The vehicle can remain aloft for up to 23 minutes, and can achieve a maximum speed of 100 kilometres per hour and an altitude of 3,400 metres. The 184's battery pack takes around four hours to recharge.
This JetPack is extremely light and small and can easily be carried around by the pilot. It should be powerful enough to lift the pilot quickly to thousands of feet above the ground but small enough to fit into the trunk of a car. Meet the JB-9 JetPack.
Autonomous flight up to 10,000 feet
Top speed of 150km/h (93,2 mph)
10 min autonomy
