After an initial delay, the inaugural Technology and Gadget Expo took place in Melbourne this past weekend. The headlining exhibits were those of drone makers and virtual reality developers showcasing their wares. Significant queues formed most of the weekend for virtual reality demos, a combination of HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear hardware.

A netted “drone zone” saw racing drones and commercial, DSLR-carrying drones showing off their abilities to large crowds. Speakers accompanied most demonstrations talking through the technology on-board their flying machines, the journey they’d been through to reach production and their real-world applications.

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.
