Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has launched a unique initiative called the Dubai Future Laboratories.
Photos posted by the Government of Dubai Media Office show Sheikh Mohammed being briefed about innovations like drones, ventilators and autonomous equipment that were developed by Emirati engineers.
Hailing the Emirati youth, the Dubai Ruler said: "Rains start with a drop and a journey of 1,000 miles starts with a step. What I saw today were drops of rain and the long miles our youth have travelled in the journey of new technology applications."
The UAE is betting on the future, Sheikh Mohammed affirmed. "This is a future that is powered by science and technology. We are betting on the human mind that does not understand the word 'impossible'."
