It is a great time to be alive if you love technology. In fact it is a great time to be alive even if you don’t love technology because the folks that do love it keep pushing the envelope which means the early and late majority get to revel in the benefits.
Innovation and user-centric design are pervading business. Entrepreneurs are spinning visions of new solutions. The media realizes tech innovation stories bring viewers.
And everyone is producing fantastic videos to showcase what could be next.
Here is a quick selection of amazing videos as examples.
Corning – A Day Made of Glass 2
The first A Day Made of Glass was a fantastic look at the future of display technology back in 2011. It has had more then 25m views which definitely demonstrates the power of visionary content. Even though Corning has gone more product-centric since, the sequel is worth viewing if you missed it because it puts technology into daily life — like the best science fiction.
Tesla – Wireless Charging
Tesla is of course synonymous with innovation but wireless charging for automobiles? This is fantastic in the original definition of the word.
Kickstarter Entrepreneurs – Kerv Payment Ring
Another great source of inspiration are the entrepreneurs pitching ideas on Kickstarter or other crowdfunding sites. Consider this payment ring from the UK. Kerv hit its kick starter goal and is working through production.
And of course no post about Digital Living can be complete without considering augmented and virtual reality. Having been to Redmond a year ago to do a number of these demos, it is impressive and mind reeling to consider how it can be applied.
