                                                                                                 Innovations at its highiest

Next year could be a turning point for many technologies. Here we list 11 advancements we’re expecting over the next 12 months in the worlds of aviation, robotics and architecture



Supersonic jumbo jet the XB-1 Supersonic Demonstrator is designed to travel at up to 2,333kph, which would make it the fastest civil aircraft ever made. Created by Denver, Colorado-based aeronautics startup Boom Technologies, the plane is intended to fly up to 45 passengers from London to New York in under three and a half hours when it launches in late 2017



3D-printed houses are nothing new – but this printing technique is. After winning the Freeform Home Design Challenge competition run by Tennessee-based startup Branch Technology, WATG’s Urban Architecture Studio in Chicago plans to create this 75-square-metre home in Chattanooga, Tennessee, using cellular fabrication techniques in the construction process



Vertigo sufferers look away now: suspended ten storeys above the ground, this 25-metre swimming pool will sit between two apartment buildings in London as part of HAL Architects’ Nine Elms Embassy Gardens development. The pool will hold its water in thanks to a 20-centimetre-thick glass bottom, and swimmers will enjoy views of the nearby US embassy



The US government has approved Moon Express – a Mountain View startup – to fly passengers to the Moon on commercial space flights. The company, co-founded by Bob Richards, Naveen Jain and Barney Pell, plans to test its MX-1 lunar lander on a Rocket Lab Electron booster in 2017, before it embarks on its first manned mission





SpaceX aims to send astronauts to the ISS as an operations test, before the launch of its first commercial flight. The Dragon rocket will take off from the Kennedy Space Center’s Space Launch System in Florida, after Nasa awarded the company contracts in September 2014 to complete the spacecraft
