Imagine a robot that arrives at the scene of an accident as a first responder, analyses the victim’s trauma and deploys nanobots to repair damaged tissue. And, if it is a critical case, a technology could keep the patient alive.

A bevy of interesting technologies like this that could transform our everyday lives are on display at a model of the Museum of the Future in Dubai as part of the World Government Summit, where visitors can get a peek into the most sophisticated ways of resolving the pressing public challenges of our times.


The Mind Transfer Gateway is a concept at the Museum of the future that transfers the human consciousness into a robot.



The summit also offers a glimpse into the future of transport. A new method of transport similar to a cable car promises to cut travel time between Abu Dhabi and Dubai to just 15 minutes long. Called the sky pod, it comes in two models, the Unibike and the Unicar. The Unibike is small, lightweight and fitted with steel wheels to move on suspended rails. It can accommodate up to five passengers and travels at a maximum speed of 150 km/hr, ferrying about 20,000 per hour.

The Unicar, which is designed to carry passengers for a distance up to 200 km, is slightly longer and wider than the Unibike and can accommodate up to six riders. The Unicar can travel at a maximum speed of 150 km/hr and transport around 50,000 passengers per hour.
