We're a foresight company.

We identify future market opportunities and challenges in digital and virtual domains through research, analysis, and exploratory fiction.

We make sense of tomorrow, today.

Our work considers the challenges and opportunities that will emerge when new technology transforms society. We explore the space where the real and virtual environments converge.

The Virtual Economy Technology Radar - An interactive map

This interactive visualisation features 54 key emerging technologies underpinning the Virtual Economy - their current capabilities, level of activity, likely trajectory, and research ecosystem. 


Social Mobility in the Digital Age - How technology changes the dynamics of social mobility
