Thanks to extraordinary demand for gadgets that make us healthier, stronger, and smarter, the technology industry is putting some serious brain power behind the next generation of wearable health devices. Over the next year, a torrent of new devices is hitting the market to provide automated elite coaching, a pocket-sized clinical lab, and your own personal assistant.
I don’t feel that I’m using technology, I don’t feel that I’m wearing technology, I feel that I am technology. I don’t perceive my antenna as a device, I perceive it as a part of my body, I perceive it as an organ.
You can live in the moment and capture it. Technology has improved this process of engaging with life through pausing to capture it. In “Why I Write,” Joan Didion explains, “I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means.” Hey, we’re all little Joan Didions!
The rise of 3D printing has introduced one of the most ground-breaking technological feats happening right now. The most exciting part, though, doesn’t have anything to do with printing cars and fancy furniture, but in producing human tissue, otherwise known as bioprinting. While it’s still early days, the future of bioprinting looks bright and will eventually result in some major advantages for society, whilst also saving billions for the economy that is spent on research and development.
The potential for 3D printing is obviously boundless, but it never ceases to amaze me how people come up with ways to use it.
