Inspired by dystopian shows like Black Mirror, we will imagine potential future scenarios of media based on today's emerging tech – and it's pretty scary. Each future examines a current trend in media, technology or shifting consumer behaviour, and is played out to its most dramatic conclusion. To save the evolution of advertising, we'll demonstrate what brands can do to prepare for each of these futures.

Gravity Industries has grown from its humble beginnings in 2017 into a multi-million dollar organisation whose influence spans the globe. Founder Richard Browning has always dared to ask 'what if' and it's this outlook that led him to create the next frontier in human flight. Donning a jet engine-powered suit, Browning flew across open water to deliver a letter – 85 years after the idea of rocket post failed. Be inspired by his experience and consider how innovation can be injected into our daily lives.
