“Industries not yet in existence will bring opportunities not yet defined. Buckle in, observe carefully, and enjoy the ride!” – #Futurist Jim Carroll
Trend #11 of 19 trends for 2019? Spatial Intelligence and data In 3 dimensions. You thought the impact of GPS on your life was big? Wait until you see the impact of this one!
The opportunities are pretty significant. Location intelligence had us mapping in 2 dimensions; spatial intelligence will have us doing the same with 3dimensions. The trend will involve the data used by self-driving cars to ‘see’ around them; cobots or “cooperative robots” working in 3d dimensions to interact with other robots and humans around them; virtual operations using 3D insight headsets, and so much more!
The possibilities are limitless and the opportunities are endless, particularly if we combine hyperconectivity, spatial intelligence, mobile technology, sensor technology and gamification!
I really got thinking about the spatial intelligence trend years ago when I started talking to my personal trainer at the gym at spatial data bubbles. (Yes, I have focus problems.) The emergence of smart-clothing will solve the problem of ‘firing’ the right muscles during an exercise routine, by providing information on whether I’m in the right spatial area.
Watch the trends, and you’ see opportunity unfold!
