When science fiction writers from the 1950’s and 60’s predicted what the future would look like, they pictured an automated world much like the Jetsons, with hovering cars and robotic housemaids. And while we may not be living in a floating city in the sky, many of their depictions are now true: such as 3D video, driverless cars, and digital assistants. We are surrounded by technical advances that continue to get more and more impressive – so we picked top innovative products available to let you know that the future is here to stay.

Showing pictures from your recent vacation just got a lot more interesting – the Insta360 Air uses two fish eye lenses and automatic stitching software to create 360 photos.

Innovative Car – Lucid Motors AIR
The Lucid Air sounds like a dream, and is almost a reality. It hits the streets in 2019, boasting 1,000 horsepower, 217mph top speed, and autonomous driving technology. The electric vehicle seems like one step away from light speed, while still maintaining sleek and futuristic style.
