The engineering of the future is shaped by digitalization. Self-driving cars controlled by GPS, delivering their coffee-drinking passengers to their destinations, high-powered engines with sensational acceleration, leaving the driver in total control: everything is possible. The character of the car is as individual as that of its dirver, although there is virtually no externally visible indicator of this. It all only becomes visible to the one who has decryption technology. Its individuality is hidden from everyone else.
