The new series will be premiering on: URBNFUTR.com


As part of our groundbreaking series Back to the Futurist, we interviewed Rohit Talwar at the Victoria & Albert Museum‘s brilliant ‘Power of Making‘ Exhibition. Using the exhibition as inspiration for our conversation Rohit delved into a mind-boggling array of possibilities that may very well define the world of tomorrow. In this video he covers exo-skeletons: now, with military exploration into the concept, no longer stuff of science fiction. What might a paralysed man such as Stephen Hawking eventually use to power movements?
