Billed as “a unique collaboration between science and design,” IMPACT! – an exhibition that recently wrapped at the Royal College of Art in Kensington, UK – explored the many ways physical sciences and engineering overlap to leave their marks on our ecnomies, our policies, and our everyday lives.

The mixed-media exhibit brought together a collection of original design proposals aimed at pushing this connection between science and society forward. The results, as you will see, were pretty impressive, ranging from the practical to the whimsical to the metaphorical.
But perhaps the adjective that best ties all the pieces together is revolutionary, as each piece boldly imagines a new way to look at existing technology, or a new technology that pushes forward existing science, making for a very interesting mash up of future tech, science and outside-the-paradigm thinking.
