Fast Forward is an immersive multimedia exploration of how our future lives are being shaped today. This exhibit spotlights some of today’s visionaries working toward a limitless, sustainable future.

From cuisine made by ink-jet printers, to urban high-rise farming, you’ll meet pioneers working on these and other amazing ideas that could change the way we live. Inventors tell us in their own words how they’ve worked to take their ideas from “what if” toward “here’s how."

Test-drive some of these innovations yourself. Add your own visual ideas to interactive displays. Live Internet news feeds about invention and technology show you the future of innovation as it takes shape, minute by minute. Pushing the boundaries of what we can imagine, the ideas and innovators in Fast Forward may even spark your own “what if.”
