I [HEART] The Future: Livingroom Panel & Gameshow

The kid in all of us has been keeping a sci-fi wishlist (gadgets, future-tech we wish were real) since she/he was 7 years old. Let's talk about what was/is at the top of your lists, why it's there and how it measures up to reality (if it already exists). We will use the responses of 10 notable names in Technology, Entertainment and Design to kickstart the conversation and transition to comparing and contrasting their answers with those of the audience (collected via live-tweet, online submission and at-the-door). In the second-half we will play the "I [heart] the future" audience game, giving people the chance to use their cunning intellect, nerd-knowledge and quick-action buzz-in skills to win most excellent prizes.
