People have long been fascinated in future devices. Buzzwords like.AI, robotics, 5G, medical IoT, and quantum computers usually come to mind when discussing future devices. But it can be difficult to image what future devices may do or how they may look.

In this issue, we take a deep dive into technologies that drive the development of futuristic devices. Two points hold true: 1. Future devices are often unexpected, 2. Future devices are driven by solid technology breakthroughs.

We have assembled a range of articles from renowned academic researchers and industry experts explaining some of the most exciting advances that are making futuristic devices possible. These articles cover utilities, user interface, programming language, new methods of communication, security and privacy issues, scalability and deployment challenges, and so on.

Our goal is to share insights into where innovations are needed, and what is required for future devices to survive and thrive in the market. This is a call for action. We firmly believe in everyone’s eventual role as a user of future devices, but some of you will also be the designers of new emerging devices. The future is now.
