The Near Future

How will we use technology that has not been invented to solve problems that don’t exist yet? We produce The Near Future films to inspire innovators to create technologies and experiences supported by the broadband network. We wake up every day to invent the future and through our innovation ecosystem, deliver these technologies that make environments more creative, collaborative, personal and improve lives.
