    can t talk open and free about futures anymore This year we give out the TWOTY s for the sixth time The Awards were created to professionalize the area s of expertise in trendwatching trend forecasting and futurizing We make a distinct difference between the Awards between the visions of today tomorrow and the visions about the world in 20 or 30 years What are the effects of change The future is an immense area and more and more people pay attention to it We also want to bring less known trendwatchers into the spotlights to bring and open new eyes to the audience of opinion makers and decision makers It is an event to open eyes and talk about possible futures with as many stakeholders as possible as Andrea Wiegman founder of the TWOTY explains The TWOTY showcases experts with an inspiring vision on change today They bring new insights trendwatchers in all categories are creative they think from many perspectives in chances in possibilities rather than in problems They definitely bring new topics to the agenda That s why this is an important award Some of the previous Trendwatcher of the Year winners are Tom Palmaerts from the Belgium Trendwolves 2013 Farid Tabarki 2012 Carl Rohde 2010 Adjiedj Bakas 2009 and Reinier Evers from Trendwatching com 2007 THE 4 AWARDS TRENDWATCHER OF THE YEAR TWOTY entries should be about the current zeitgeist or spirit of our time it can be a new lifestyle an interesting development a trending topic with a need to share it with a wider public Spread the word TREND FORECASTER OF THE YEAR entries should be about new and emerging topics lifestyles or trends that are interesting for the industry to focus on or to prepare for New ways of production new technics new

    2016AndBeyond SecondsightNL October 30 2015 Rosanne de Koning Comment October 27 2015 by Rosanne de Koning Innovating with Visions Trends for 2016 And Beyond UTRECHT 20151026 This week the TrendWatcher Of The Year Awards TWOTY Awards are presented for the sixth time This year the event will be held at the Accenture Innovation Awards in Utrecht on 30 October from 9 to 11 a m Please book your free places quickly as we have limited capacity This week the TrendWatcher Of The Year Awards TWOTY Awards are presented for the sixth time This year 2015 the event will be held at the Accenture Innovation Awards in Utrecht on 30 October from 9 to 11 a m Please book your free places quickly as we have limited capacity The organisation of the TWOTY Awards encourages a broader and more open view of the future and this means that we are always on the look out for new visions in the field of trends and possible futures The TWOTY Awards are organised by SecondSight an institute at which trendwatchers trend forecasters and futurists share their visions and ideas about the future What will be important over the next few years and why And which developments are relevant to 2016 And Beyond An independent jury of communication and marketing specialists strategists and innovation experts review the documents submitted to them and examine which trends and visions of the future are relevant and why On which developments could and should business and government focus Innovating and working on the future are goals that we increasingly hear about More people than ever before are working on innovation and are thus working on the future says Andrea Wiegman initiator of the TWOTY Awards but the future is more complex than it may seem at first glance And innovating without a vision or an idea about trends can be counterproductive We believe that it is vital to place several visions side by side to allow people to develop their own vision The nominees for TWOTY1516 are Trendwatcher of the Year Jacqueline Wolfs Sander Duivestein and Guido van de Wiel Trend Forecaster of the Year Truus Dokter Carlos Cuellar Brown and Yang Design Futurist of the Year Rachel Armstrong and Justien Marseille Upcoming Talents Delany Boutkan Steven van den Haak Sanne Visser and Silvia Naber You cannot innovate without a vision of the future according to Wiegman The fact is that you have to know what is trending in a certain society if you want to know what to work on or what to develop in the next few years And the same is true vice versa trends are valuable only if words are put into action Now is the time to approach the future in practical terms and to link vision development to innovation That is why I present the TWOTY at the Accenture Innovation Awards this year And of course it is the perfect occasion for a party as well We are celebrating thinking about the future Market and trend researcher Klaus van den Berg will play his TWOTY Nu Disco playlist We start off the day with a glass of champagne to toast the many futures that are currently being made For more information about the TWOTY s 2015 2016 the nominees the judging process or if you would like to

PERSBERICHT TWOTY AWARDS 1516 October 22 2015 by Rosanne de Koning De Trendwatcher of The Year Awards 2015 2016 Innoveren met visies trends voor 2016 And Beyond Amsterdam 220 oktober 2015 Volgende week worden voor de zesde keer de TrendWatcher Of The Year Awards TWOTY Awards uitgereikt Dit keer vindt het jaarlijkse evenement plaats op de Accenture Innovation Awards in Utrecht op 30 oktober a s van 9 11 uur Reserveer snel en kosteloos want vol is vol De organisatie van de TWOTY Awards promoot dat wij onze blik op de toekomst moeten verruimen en is dus altijd op zoek naar nieuwe visies op gebied van trends en mogelijke toekomsten De TWOTY Awards worden georganiseerd door SecondSight een instituut waar diverse trendwatchers trend forecasters en futuristen hun visie en kijk op de toekomst delen Wat zal de komende jaren belangrijker worden en waarom En welke ontwikkelingen zijn voor 2016 And Beyond relevant Een onafhankelijke jury van communicatie en marketingspecialisten strategen en innovatie experts beoordeelt de ingezonden stukken en kijkt naar welke trends en toekomstvisies relevant zijn en waarom Op welke ontwikkelingen zouden bedrijven en overheden zich kunnen of moeten gaan richten Innoveren en werken aan de toekomst zijn doelen die wij steeds vaker horen Meer mensen dan ooit tevoren werken aan innovatie en dus met de toekomst zegt Andrea Wiegman oprichter van de TWOTY Awards maar toch is de toekomst complexer dan zo één twee drie lijkt En innoveren zonder visie of kijk op trends kan verkeerd uitpakken Wij vinden het belangrijk om meerdere visies naast elkaar te leggen zodat mensen een eigen visie kunnen ontwikkelen De genomineerden voor TWOTY1516 zijn Trendwatcher of The Year Jacqueline Wolfs Sander Duivestein en Guido van de Wiel Trend Forecaster of The Year Truus Dokter Carlos Cuellar Brown en Yang Design Futurist of The Year Rachel Armstrong en Justien Marseille Upcoming Talents Delany Boutkan Steven van den Haak Sanne Visser en Silvia Naber Innoveren kan niet zonder visie op de toekomst volgens Wiegman Je moet namelijk weten wat er leeft in een bepaalde maatschappij wil je weten waar de komende jaren aan gebouwd of gewerkt moet worden En andersom geldt het ook trends zijn niet veel waard als er niets mee wordt gedaan en er slechts over wordt gesproken Nu is de tijd om praktisch met de toekomst aan de slag te gaan en visieontwikkeling aan innovatie te koppelen Daarom presenteer ik dit jaar de TWOTY op de Accenture Innovation Awards Natuurlijk maken we er ook een mooi feestje van Wij vieren dat wij over toekomsten nadenken Markt trendonderzoeker Klaus van den Berg draait zijn TWOTY Nu Disco playlist Wij starten op 30 oktober de dag met een glas bubbels om op de vele toekomsten die momenteel in de maak zijn te proosten Lees

October 15th 2015 is the date Marty McFly travelled to in the movie Back to the Future 2 1992 Its not everyday we get to live the exact day of a future prediction so lets have some fun and have a look at what we thought 2015 would look like Hover boards are probably the most mentioned future prediction from the movie Sadly with the exception of a few lucky individuals we aren t yet riding on hover boards and its definitely not kids playing with them these days But in some sense the movie had a point while many hover boards that could hover in place have been developed in the past this year has seen the first real hover board by Lexus And it gets some bonus points because this one actually works over water And its not just the actual hover board that draws a parallel to today It is also the cult surrounding the idea of a hover board 2015 has also been the year in which an auto balancing two wheeled scooter gained popularity which is often incorrectly referred to as a hoverboard But riding them or hover boards certainly isn t common place like it is in the move as the arrest of Wiz Khalifa for riding one of the aforementioned two wheeled scooters attests to The fashion in Back to the Future 2 may have looked very futuristic at the time to us it mostly just looks like the 1980s While to overal aesthetic may have been a total miss there were some interesting features that were some relatively accurate predictions For one Nike is releasing a shoe like the one in the movie with auto lacing sneakers this year they already released a replica last year but without auto lacing And we are also in the process of developing clothes that shape around its wearer which in a way reminds us of the auto adjusting sleeves of Marty s jacket Unfortunately self drying jackets still don t exist especially for us Dutchies riding our bikes everywhere While it got many technological innovations somewhat right it featured Google Glas like glasses dog walking drones and it was rightly anticipated media would pretty much rule our world there was one very important piece of technology missing The mobile phone Or rather the smartphone No one in the street was looking down at a screen people were still reading papers bonus the paper predicted lady Di to be visiting the US in 2015 The lack of mobile phones may be one of the biggest failures of the movie mobile phones while rare did already exist at the time the movie was made And so did pagers which could have easily been an inspiration for a more complex type of sending text messages No one talking or sending messages on some kind of a mobile device is thus quite a big miss Another interesting one although I would not quite call it a huge miss maybe just a big one is the fax mailboxes on the street see image providing us with a good laugh now that we can fax without having to have a physical copy read email While early versions of email existed in private networks mostly for the army it wasn t until 1993 it was integrated into the public internet If anything Back to the Future is a perfect illustration of two phenomena our cultural blindspot when it comes to the future and our optimism bias The example of the mobile phones shows how big our cultural blindspot can be We ve probably all seen those videos of street interviews when mobile phones just came out Most people thought they would never get one they didn t want to be disturbed all day every day and they didn t see the need Today they are an essential part of our communication At the same time we also tend to overestimate the technological progress we will make we still don t have any cars flying around This is the optimism bias at work But who wants a flying car we still have to drive ourselves when we can have a car we no longer have to drive and have our hands and eyes free to send work emails or text friends and family from our mobile phones This isn t an exhaustive list of all technologies in the movie not by far We selected the examples most interesting to us October 15 2015 Rosanne de Koning Comment To the Moon and Beyond October 06 2015 by Rosanne de Koning Now that we can drink our whiskey in space there is nothing holding us back from space colonisation Ok just kidding But now that have found water on Mars the possibility of living on Mars has become a lot more real The discovery along with the serendipitous release of the movie The Martian will spark will spark a revival of public interesting in living on Mars Along with technological advancements in artificial intelligence robotics and 3D printing we can really start too look towards space colonisation The question is no longer if or when we will live in space but where we will live in space Ballantine s Space Glass One of the most well known recent projects to colonise Mars is Mars One a non profit project that sets out to send the first humans to colonise Mars by 2026 through permanent settlement Before humans will make their way to Mars cargo shipments will bring the supplies for the outpost to mars which will be assembled by two rovers With settlers already signing up for their one way ticket the project is one of the most real But the program has also received a lot of criticism two MIT scientists have run some feasibility tests and concluded that with the current plan the settlers would die after just 68 days on Mars Bas Lansdorp CEO of Mars One has had to admit the plan is mostly fiction But there is still hope NASA is also working towards colonising Mars Last week the winner of the 3D printed Habitat challenge has been announced The challenge set out a challenge for contestants to develop a vision of shelters for human habitation on Mars constructed by autonomous habitat manufacturing machines The goal of the 3D Printed Habitat Challenge is to foster the development of new technologies necessary to additively manufacture a habitat using local indigenous materials with or without recyclable materials But Nasa isn t just working on the colonisation of Mars it also looking at the Moon Using the same habitat manufacturing machines robots as means to build habitats on the Moon and eventually far beyond the Moon and Mars Nasa is mainly eyeing the Shackleton crater which is about twice as big as Washington D C Water has already been found inside the crater and NASA expects to be able to build a habitat using solar powered robots The first challenge is to build reflective robots that redirect sunlight from the peeks into the crater If these robots can be developed the plan to colonise the moon can proceed And once reusable space crafts are developed colonising the moon will be a lot cheaper than we initially thought Once colonised the moon can also be used as a base for further space travel Moon colony image produced for NASA by Pat Rawlings 1995 And then there are the orbital space stations like the space colony in the movie Elysium Based on the Stanford torus designed by NASA But the Elysium design could serve as a model the designers for the movie have made very precise calculations using the number of residents to create a realistically sized virtual model of the space station Agricultural advancements such as aquaponics make it possible to cultivate food without using earth s soil so that the future space inhabitants can enjoy the same foodture as humans on Earth While Mars the Moon and orbit seem to be the most likely possibilities theoretical astrophysicist have recently discovered that many earth like planets in other solar systems in our universe previously though to be inhabitable may be habitable after all It was assumed that these planets didn t rotate leaving one side permanently facing their sun and one permanently dark read scorching hot dessert on one side freezing arctic conditions on the other but this assumption now appears to be false Only hurdle left is making space ships that travel faster so they can actually get us there Please prepare for warp Let us be kind Source Seattle Humor October 06 2015 Rosanne de Koning Comment Foodture The Future of Food and Food from the Future October 01 2015 by Rosanne de Koning The future of food is often envisioned as very practical we will just take a pill for dinner that has all the nutrients we need Many would argue eating is a social or cultural phenomenon and the act of having dinner would eventually prevent the rise of pill dinners The cultural blindspot is often a problem when it comes to future predictions but were our predictions of just a pill for dinner so wrong The last few years we have seen a strong countermovement to modified food in the health food movement Food has to be as natural as possible again no additive preservatives or GMO food and fastfood was countered with slow food After sloughed we are now seeing healthy fastfood which translates in the growing amount of take out healthy food local examples for Amsterdam include Sla and Stach At the same time artisan versions of fast food have also gained popularity in Amsterdam you actually need a reservation for some of the hottest hamburger joints while the amount of gourmet burger joints keeps increasing While there is a strong move towards more natural and healthy food it is also a trend towards easy food Take away or quick dinner out are the modus operandi of most health food restaurants A more efficient meal leaves us with more time for work Efficiency gains in particular too have more time to work were not envisioned for the self driving car but they were envisioned for food And its not just quick real food dinner that are gaining popularity By now many of us have probably heard of Soylent a nutritious drink that eliminates the need to waste time eating Marketed mostly on efficiency gains throughout days it is a perfect example of the values of today s society A more efficient meal leaves us with more time for work Not surprisingly Solent was developed with funding from a crowdfunding campaign and later attracted additional venture capital Soylent may not be a pill but its pure form and ideology do have striking similarities with the dinner pill So where are we going back to real food or towards a dinner pill or perhaps both In the future we may strike a balance as many solent users actually do When lacking time we will grab a fake meal making eating real food even more of a special event And we may even make quite a spectacle of food Harvard bioengineering professor David Edwards Café ArtScience may be a clue as to what spectacle food may
