The world 25 years from now
“Trends” - that’s the subject of this edition of weld+vision. Which is why its publication date was chosen to coincide with the Fronius ProductLaunch. Being a technological leader, Fronius naturally has a big say when it comes to future trends - especially those in the welding technology field. Read more on pages 7 to 11.
You’ll also find an interesting article on this year’s Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria. The motto of the 2004 festival was “Timeshift: The world 25 years from now”, and it could have been coined with this edition of weld+vision specially in mind.
This year’s Ars Electronica analysed the currents that have taken place in the arts, society and technology over the past 25 years, and hazarded a critical look ahead to the next 25. With a crossreference to the momentous field of nanotechnology. So settle down and immerse yourself in the world of tomorrow!
