Thursday Night: BNO IMG LAB Smart

Self-driving cars, robots that do our jobs and a fridge that compiles your shopping list, orders what you need and has it delivered. We can connect everything with everything, but what is the relationship between people and technology and the impact on interpersonal relations? Designs that look to the future with the knowledge of today. It’s a marvellous world.
