AbstractWe have the ability to converse with robots through virtual assistants, and 3D print what comes to mind. We have taken the ideas from science fiction, and made them a scientific reality — creating innovation at a pace incomparable to any other industrial advancement s of our past. Of course, we don’t often think about what an amazing — and colossal — feat this actually is. On the contrary, we utilise its convenience as much as possible, without giving too much thought to the logistics of this paradigm. Notwithstanding the fact that we have been quick to reap the benefits of this, we are yet to give vital consideration to the influence these developments will continue to deliver; the vitual assistant in your mobile is not the climax of the innovation we've yet to see.
