Though it has the form of an old skool typewriter, the Hemingwrite (in Kickstarter mode) creates digital documents that sync to the cloud. Eliminates the distractions that come with a laptop, as well as size and weight. I want one!  http://ht.ly/Ng4DM
Hemingwrite is raising funds for Hemingwrite - A Distraction Free Digital Typewriter on Kickstarter! The Hemingwrite is a distraction free writing tool with modern technology like a mechanical keyboard, e-paper screen and cloud backups.

Like a DNA census, the hope is that mobile technology can collect your genetic info, contributing to a growing Internet of DNA (fancy name for interactive database). Would be a huge boost to medical research, and offers many options for personalized medicine. That Apple is laying a significant claim in healthcare is yet another example of strategic foresight on their part. http://ht.ly/MTySm

I've been waiting for this!!  The next stride in printable, interactive fabric means that clothing, and other soft-material objects, is on its way (give it a few years) http://ht.ly/MOKOJ
A new 3D-printing technology uses fabric to create flexible, soft-to-the-touch objects that are interactive.

The future of multi-tasking is secure with this cruise-control device for humans: remote control sensors tell you where to step so you can keep looking at your phone as you walk. Can't help but feel sad about this one :(  http://ht.ly/LHOoL

Lighting fixtures that open and close with variation in light, just as flowers do. #PurePoetry
Shylights are simple ceiling lights shrouded in translucent silk and designed to mimic the process of a flower opening or closing in response to light.

In Tallahassee at TalTech and this beard-o asked me to sign his book with a drawing of a drawing (on phone). Love it!

Existential angst for publishers who have conceded to partner with Facebook. A challenge to their distribution and revenue model (ads) with a partner who changes the rules when customers change their mind. Facebook comes closer and closer to being the social portal to your many interests, brought to you by...lots of ads and data sharing arrangements!

I recently attended a keynote speech by author and consultant Cecily Sommers. Ms. Sommers is a corporate futurist and author of the book, “Think Like a Futurist: Know What Changes, What Doesn't, and What's Next”. Two points in particular caught my interest during her talk: the corporations for which she develops scenarios about possible futures for the business environments in which they operate - as well as potential working business models - mo...

As kale goes, so go the dietary habits of Americans (McDonald's considering it on their menu!). Looking ahead that means more healthy eating, sustainable practices. Yay! http://ht.ly/Kvo7B
In the future, fat and bacteria are good, soil is smarter, and healthy convenience is king.
