In a project called Made In The Future, innovation and design consultancy Ideo examined the ways how technology will change in the next decade.
The interesting concepts, based on research by Ideo and MIT Media Lab, probe into the idea that products will soon be customizable in new ways. They include a tabletop device that cranks out a little sculpture based on sound waves; a shirt that tracks your emotions and emails the stats to your therapist at the end of the day; or an outdoor sweater factory for the desert in Death Valley.
