Over the last eight years, Mazda has developed a software system that measures a huge range of data, including throttle position and steering wheel angle, to subtly smooth out driver inputs by adjusting its SkyActiv engines' torque by miniscule amounts in a matter of milliseconds. By reducing the amount of fuel burnt, a vehicle's weight distribution is shifted slightly forward to exert more downforce on the car's driven and steering front wheels.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
