Why It Matters

2040 is Singapore's deadline to phase out internal combustion engines. Right now, only about five per cent of vehicles in Singapore are "green" - hybrid or electric. More incentives will roll out next year to promote the use of electric cars - but are they enough? Are green cars really as environmentally friendly as they made out to be? Is there a better, cleaner alternative to electric vehicles?

Why It Matters

About the show:

Join our inquisitive host Joshua Lim, as he discovers emerging technologies and uncovers unexpected findings that could change the way we look at the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Puzzled by differing safe distancing rules around the world, he sneezes, sings and talks to mannequins to see how far you need to be, to be safe from each other’s viruses. Bored to tears at home, he checks out Virtual Reality technologies and witness how early adopters are already changing the way we meet, date or even party in the age of social distancing. He sees how the need for ‘eye contact’ in VR meetings means he can no longer pretend to be paying attention in remote meetings. He finds out, to his disappointment, that vaccines may not guarantee the end to future COVID-19 outbreaks and how some people are already rethinking the design for public loos for a world like that. 

See how Joshua navigates this brave new world while keeping a safe distance from his interviewees, our camera crew and everyone else.
