The Future of Technology

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

4:30 pm until 6:00 pm

Is the future of technology more like the Jetsons or the Terminator?  ChaTech presents some very futuristic technologies that will change the way we work, play, think, travel, move, manufacture, and interact.  Come and participate in an open review and discussion of technologies such as Hyperloop, 4D printing, augmented humans, robotics, smart dust, nanotubes, and many others.  Is it hype or will it be reality someday?  How will these technologies that are potentially decades away impact you and your business?  Join the conversation and think like a futurist.
