Belgium will participate in the World Exhibition at Dubai in 2021, due to COVID 19 the opening foreseen for 2020 has been rescheduled towards the 1th of October/21 - 31th of March/22.
The motto of this event is "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future" working around three themes being Sustainability: Live in balance with the world around us and experience how the human race can enjoy harmony with nature in a high-tech future, Mobility: Create smarter and better connections and see how new possibilities can unfold through smarter movement of knowledge - ideas - goods and Opportunity: Unlock the potential within each of us and learn how people are already creating opportunities for a better future and be inspired to do the same.

This artefact piece of Art will be covered with old Atomium panels from EXPO 1958. So one world exhibit will be recycled for use in world exhibit EXPO 2021-2022. This is Urban Reincarnation / AUGmented recycling: time travel in itself. Our W.A.S.T.E. concept, Will Art Save The Ecosystem ? is a perfect fit for these three themes, as the Gyratom is made from 100% recycled materials. Also the W.A.S.T.E. learning programme emphasises the revival of practical vocational training programmes/executive Science Technical Engineering Mathematics courses and we travel through time with Belgium's most cult vehicle.
The Gyratom will be placed on the roof of the Belgian Pavilion and becomes the eyecatcher of this event.
We underpin the Science part by equipping the Gyratom with our IoT technology providing the following functionalities:
