The Casual Living Ubertrend is leading to a world where the accepted global uniform is a t-shirt and a pair of jeans. Judging by the innovative vision of science-fiction wardrobe designers, fashion will eventually resemble Jessica Alba’s unitard outfit in the 2005 movie Silver Surfer.

That is underscored by Morgan Stanley’s prediction that autonomous aircraft could become a $1.5 trillion industry by 2040. Meanwhile, Amazon has unveiled the latest iteration of its Prime Air delivery drone. Video below in our innovation video gallery.
