VOICEOVER SCRIPT:

WONDERING WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS? LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THIS EXHIBITION HIGHLIGHTING NEARLY 100 INVENTIONS from around the world.

HEALTH AND FITNESS WERE HOT AT THIS SHOW--HELD RECENTLY IN SEOUL.

From A PAIR OF SNEAKERS THAT AUTOMATICALLY TIGHTEN WITH the PUSH OF A BUTTON. NO LACES NEEDED.

To A BICYCLE WITH PONTOONS THAT CAN BE RIDDEN ON LAND OR SEA.

AND THIS DUNK TANK. IT'S REALLY SUPPOSED TO BE A CHIROPRACTIC AID. USING BUOYANCY AND SPECIAL SHOES.

ON THE SECURITY FRONT--AMAZON ISN'T ALONE IN EXPERIMENTING WITH DRONES. THE X-O COP COMES EQUIPPED WITH ON BOARD CAMERAS.

(NATS IN KOREAN)

THE PRESIDENT OF THE COMPANY THAT MAKES THE X-O SAYS IT CAN OVERCOME THE LIMITS OF FIXED SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS.

THIS CONCEPT HOUSE COULD HELP YOU SURVIVE IN A DISASTER ZONE. IT'S DESIGNED FOR REGIONS OF THE WORLD THAT ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO FLOODING OR TSUNAMIS.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Khiensak Seangklieng, Thai exhibitor and Assistant Professor of Architecture and Planning, Thammasat University:

"The house should have the spaces for the plantation, for the energy consumption, like green energy."

AND FINALLY--NO SHOW ABOUT INVENTIONS WOULD BE COMPLETE WITHOUT A 3-D PRINTER. THE EDISON IS THE FIRST ONE MADE IN SOUTH KOREA. THE 17-HUNDRED DOLLAR PRINTER CAN PRODUCE A FIST-SIZED OBJECT IN THREE TO FOUR HOURS.

EXPERTS PREDICT THAT ONE DAY WE'LL ALL HAVE PRINTERS LIKE THIS IN OUR HOMES --CAPABLE OF PRODUCING ANY ITEM WE WANT OR NEED

(NATS IN KOREAN)

A COMPANY OFFICIAL SAYS THAT COULD HAPPEN IN THE NEXT THREE TO FIVE YEARS.
