In this chapter, we look at technology and applications with break-through capacity to contribute solutions to the systemic human–environment problem. We focus on existing examples and case studies as these provide specific information and context by which to discuss successful instances of translating holistic Life science into real-world projects, systems, and creations. Not that we pretend to be science-fiction writers, but we also discuss several potential or hypothetical applications and technology beyond what exists now, knowing that history has shown often technologies are anticipated in such a manner.
