Technology Coming Soon That Will Blow Your Mind

From bendy TVs that you hang like a picture, to virtual-reality headsets that can transport you far away, to the glass tables that we will soon be conducting meetings on – the technology on the brink of becoming ‘mainstream’ is the stuff of movies, dreams and elite government sects.
