During the meeting a wide range of issues about the future of humanity (artificial intelligence, disruptive technologies, social issues of human adaptation to the life in cyber-physical space, materials for the future, etc.) was discussed.
To join the future is possible not only during discussions in the European Commission but also outside. You can buy tools of additive technology: a 3D printer, a 3D scanner, and a 3D pen near the European Commission. You can see how they work right in the shop window.
Evening Brussels pleased with the novelty: a huge Ferris Wheel. It appeared at the highest point of the city, near the Palace of Justice.
