The newest technologies develop and improve very rapidly, whichever field they may be related to. Many inventions of today that sounded like science fiction just a decade ago are now a part of our everyday life. In this interview we talk with the renowned Professor Michael Bove of the MIT Media Lab. Among his projects are: Holographic Television, 8K Time Machine, Printed Wearable Holographic Display, Programmable Synthetic Hallucinations, Aerial Light Field Displays, Dressed In Data and Listen Tree. We asked him to explain in lay persons terms what the Media Lab is currently doing and the new technological creations we can expect in the near future.

Young Lazar Jovanovic (25), a student at the University of Technical Sciences, had a hazelnut farm... This story could begin just like this, but makes no sense at all without adding the fact that Lazar’s farm was not in the same city where he lived. So he decided to invent a system that could water his precious hazelnuts remotely. It took him more than two years to research, develop, and test something that was just an idea, and it would not have been possible without a friend who was a programmer. Today, he is the owner of the Smart Watering Company, which helps farmers to irrigate their farms using only a text message! Read how he did it in an interview for Youth Time magazine.

The following trainer has been with Youth Time on several occasions in the past. As these were all enlightening performances, we are happy he will once again be sharing his experience with the participants at the Youth International Summer School Beijing 2017, this time in his Communicating Across Cultural Diversity Workshop. Meet Hrishabh Sandilya, a Prague-based entrepreneur, academic, and commentator, who according to his own words combines his love for cities, with a passion of social entrepreneurship and teaching politics.
