Description of Valdrin's design - In the center you can see a person with VR googles. He is in a virtual reality environment and envisioning the future in VR. Around him are five circles, they each represent a different domain of future advancements that will impact our daily live drastically. Starting from the top left we see brain inspired circuits and AI/ML circuits and accelerators that are becoming more common in our daily life. Next we have a foldable phone, more research is being done on flexible electronics, and the next generation of smartphones might be one that is able to fold and change its shape. The third circle represent IoT and wearable devices, imaging your fridge being able to order milk for you when you are almost running out. The forth is augmented reality glasses, one could envision future doctors wearing AR glasses that allows them to see inside the patient's body and aiding them in surgeries. And finally we have biomedical circuits and sensors that will help us living healthier lives and are able to monitor and assist us in our daily life.

 

Congratulations to the runner-up's - James Mawdsley, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Ogbodu Chukwufumnanya, Obafemi Awolowo University.
