Visitors to this year's Royal Norfolk Show can get hands-on experience with the latest technology thanks to Norfolk County Council.
The Digital Zone will showcase cutting-edge devices with three different areas focusing on how technology can help us at home, in the classroom and in the wider world.
Digital Learning will have fun, interactive activities for children including virtual reality (VR) headsets, Lego engineering sets and programmable robots.
Home of the Future will showcase the latest in "assistive technology" - gadgets that help elderly and disabled people remain independent for longer including smart speakers, fall sensors and a Ring doorbell.
Get Connected will feature the Internet of Things, with sensors that can detect if a farm gate has opened, if a bin has been filled or an area has flooded.
