When you look at the 21st century, a long time after early innovations appeared like the lightbulb or the phone, to later innovations such as the Arpanet protocol, to later search engines and portals, you might ask yourself what the future of innovation will look like.

Google made the world’s information accessible. Apple made the world of devices simpler/prettier. Facebook made the world closer. But what’s next?
