What does the future really hold for us? We're still holding out for tubes that fling us across town like they have in 'Futurama', but even if pipes aren't in the pipeline there are lots of advances to get excited about, and they'll all be explored on the line-up at this two-day festival of innovation. Hands-on experiences include the chance to try technology which transmits sensory experiences over the internet, a virtual reality thrill ride that transmits you through your own psychedelic landscape and tasting sessions in the Sweetshop of the Future.

Topics covered in the line-up of discussions include the future of democracy, the security and technological changes behind the way we now use money and the effects of robots on the working world. Look out for speakers such as NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, Darkwallet founder Amir Taaki and authors Jon Ronson and John Lanchester. Booking recommended.
