Loving this animated depiction of the Hero's Journey.
Joseph Campbell: "In the cave you fear to enter lies the treasure you seek."
"..this quest has changed the hero, she's outgrown her old life."
Truth! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hhk4N9A0oCA

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

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!

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

Your new work assistant is built right into your Robotic sit-stand Desk!  Not only does it remind you to switch your posture, but it remembers and responds to your habits, orders lunch from your favorite places, schedules appointments, and more. A kickstarter project that's sure to be a winner: http://ht.ly/MS5mk

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

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
