WHAT IS PRE-ORDER THE FUTURE?

Pre-order the Future is not only a project but a mindset. During the last few years we have put major effort on developing our renewable fuels and materials. Today our production facilities offer a line of quality renewable products made out of waste and residues. Our latest result of research and development is Neste bioplastic that is not only better for the environment but is also able to remove CO2 from of the air – meaning that it actually cleans the air we breathe.

Essentially Pre-order the Future is about exploring new ways to create a better, cleaner tomorrow. The project resulted in EduCycle, a gamified learning environment. EduCycle teaches through practice what kind of consequences our choices have.

OTHER CONCEPTS

Pre-order the Future resulted altogether in five futuristic product and service concepts. EduCycle, an educational augmented reality game, was chosen for further development. Take a look at the other concepts below.

The GreenPod, developed primarily from renewable materials, is a multifunctional space, mixing home and office, private and public.

ThinkEar is a personal audio system controlled by your brainwaves. Its integrated EEG sensors are able to read brainwaves and translate them into commands that navigate audio content.

EcoTravel plans each step of your holiday. All trips are powered by renewable fuels, and all activities and services have a minimal carbon impact.

CleanTrail is a one-click plugin enabling sustainable delivery of goods and services.

THE JURY

The Pre-order the Future jury consisted of five people from different fields of expertise. Their task was to pick the most potential idea among all the brilliant propositions, and help in developing it even further.

Richard Williams, better known by his stage name Prince Ea, is spoken word artist, rapper and YouTube star who now joins Neste’s Pre-order Future as a futurologist. He is known as a passionate environmentalist and a spokesperson for sustainable lifestyles. His spoken word videos have had over half a billion views on YouTube and Facebook.

It’s really important for us to create a more advanced, developed and technological future; but we also need to make that future more sustainable and more harmonious with the environment and with each other.
