Dezeen and MINI Frontiers launches today

Today we're launching Dezeen and MINI Frontiers - a major, year-long collaboration with MINI that will explore how design and technology are coming together to shape the future.

Over the coming year we'll be looking at some of the most exciting developments in emerging fields such as augmented reality, wearable technology, synthetic biology, robotics and mobility.

Subtitled "Where design and technology connect", Dezeen and MINI Frontiers will take us on a journey of discovery. Through a series of videos we'll be speaking to the most interesting, established and emerging talents from around the world who are working at the frontiers of these disciplines.

We'll be investigating the way that connectivity between previously separate disciplines is creating new hybrids, new originals and new ways of working that promise to change for the better the way we live and work.

We look forward to sharing our discoveries with you over the next 12 months.

Look out for our first movie tomorrow, in which Andy Millns of 3D technology company Inition discusses how virtual reality is fast becoming as life-like as the real world.

In September we’ll be teaming up with six leading creatives to explore the future of mobility in an exhibition at designjunction at London Design Festival - details to be announced soon.
