A tech forecast of mine from 20 years ago is coming true today at MIT… a needle table that responds to the user’s motions and emulates him/her in moving objects around.  We aren’t yet at the exercise floor I portrayed in “NatuLife.” But clearly it is coming.

The Tangible Media Group at MIT's Media Lab has unveiled a futuristic display made of atoms, not pixels.

"the indoor farming experiments taking place in Japan. The projects, which are mainly called ‘plant factories,’ sound fantastical: There’s one greenhouse attached to a grocery store, where you can go pick your tomatoes before weighing and purchasing them. There’s Pasona O2, a 10,000 square foot vertical farm built underground in a former bank vault in Tokyo, where chefs go to train. The Fairy Angel plant factory in the basement of a restaurant in Kyoto boasts of having zero food miles. The Sembikiya fruit emporium sells designer fruits, including cantaloupes that wear hats in their greenhouses so they don’t get blemished. All told, the country has more than 150 hydroponic growing operations, and gets about a third of its food from urban agriculture"

Big Oil has convinced some lawmakers to try to delay the inclusion of motor fuels in the state's carbon-trading system. Because it cares about struggling families.
