Inventions to Come

  • USB-drives with LED-text display of its contents.
  • Sound notes. An app that lets you capture the sound of a moment, the same way you’d capture a photo, give it a tag, share it and archive it.
  • The written equivalent of podcasts. I believe podcasts are fantastically useful ways to listen into conversations of all kinds and gather knowledge from a diverse set of fields. You can store them offline and store enough to play for days on end. There is no direct written equivalent of this. RSS feeds maybe?
  • Crisis zone tourism. Flying at a safe distance above recent catastrophic events, such as the Costa Concordia or the Westgate mall. War tourism has already arrived.
  • Emotion selfies
  • Weather selfies
