There’s no denying it, 2016 has been weird. In many respects, it could be seen as a new part of Back to the Future; people started chasing after Pokémon again like they did 15-20 years ago, and Apple decided to move back to a pre-1878 time where jack plugs didn’t exist. If for most the year was tumultuous, here at Techmog, we’ve been lucky enough to witness interesting, and fun tech innovation.

I despise in-ear earphones. Sure they sound amazing, but nothing can make up for that feeling of inserting a tiny butt plug into your ear cavity. Apple’s Earpods are more for me – an opinion not shared by many. I guess you can’t please everyone, or can you?

2016 has been a year of really shitty battery life. Pokemon Go took us off-grid within minutes, the iPhone 7 was slammed as having the worst battery life of all phones, not to mention Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge batteries which just blow up. So why not treat yourself this Black Friday (the last day you’re arguably allowed to buy presents for yourself) and bag a big deal on a big power bank.

In our digital age, technology has been taking into account human senses, enhancing them, transcribing them to an immaterial world of pixels, be it through VR, haptic feedback, or bone conduction. Yet, taste and smell seem to be left out. Is it because it involves a complex chemical process? Or because since the 1965 Smell-O-Vision hoax (or even Google Nose for April fool’s 2013), it is considered a bit of a gimmick?

The doorbell is probably the last appliance to get in on the Internet of Things action, and to be honest it’s the only thing that might actually benefit from it. It addresses an actual problem – not being home when someone comes calling.

When a potentially revolutionary platform-based technology is revealed the inventor has enough leverage to pick and choose who to partner with and be the first to build onto it. But what if your company isn’t picked? You could buy a pre-release development version, hire a team of developers, and build it in-house. Or you drastically reduce the cost and risk and hire Kazendi.

Maker Assembly brings people together to have critical conversations about cultures of making – their meanings, politics, histories and futures. We encourage everyone to participate by combining short talks with contributions from the attendees. The event is peer-to-peer, informal and conversational.
