What is the most exciting innovation in your industry?

The natural daily cycle of light is becoming increasingly recognised as essential for health. Artificial light will become more automatic but personalised and attuned to each individual and their location. Looking slightly further into the future the combination of Carbon Nano Tubes, OLEDs, Drone mounted 3D printing and Graphene will be producing gravity defying blades of light strong enough to drive over.
