Covert contact lenses, artistic robots & cyborg plants - June's 'Future Now'

28TH JUNE 2019


Welcome to June’s edition of ‘Future Now’ – a curated collection of the coolest creative tech stories we spotted this month.

This edition features contact lenses that record video, a horror show you can only watch at night, and a bloke who spent an entire week in VR. Numerous tech for good stories including a digital learning and discovery toy for kids that isn’t a mobile phone, and an AI that could spot you having a heart attack. Plus driverless cars and air taxis, a humanoid robot that paints and writes poetry, and cyborg plants who can communicate with us.

We’ve given you instant access to the first five stories, which you can download here.
