The WGS Technology Radar is a study of emerging technologies across multiple fields and sectors, with over 150 technologies being identified, illustrated, described and evaluated. Each technology represents a future possibility and attempts to estimate when widespread global use might be reached. Decades of scientific discoveries have created a surge in development across multiple sectors, and our relationship with these technologies impacts our everyday lives. We invite you to browse through these technologies and envision the future.
