These are a few of my favorite things
Hi you all
This week is quite a mix, from subdermal tech (yeah, forget wearables, under your skin will be the new thing) to just a beautiful planter by a guy in Cape Town.
Have a good one!
1. Eyeball tech
Google has just filed a patent for a smart device that would be inserted into your eyeball. According to the patent filing, the device would replace the natural lens in your eye, and would be injected with a solution that congeals, attaching to your lens capsule. The device would mostly be used as a way to correct poor vision, for now…
The device itself includes a lens, but it has storage, sensors, a battery (with a energy harvesting antenna), and radio components so it can communicate with other devices, such as an external module that offers processing power.
2. Roam // Live anywhere
The no-ownership trend, UBER, AIRbnb, etc is showing no signs of slowing down. I quite like Roam's concept. With a more fluid workforce and the gig-economy on the rise you can work from wherever whenever, Roam steps in to fill the need for a fluid living space.
$500 per week per room gives you access to incredible co-living spaces and local communities around the world. And of course "...you'll always have a strong and battle-tested internet connection."
This is just gorgeous. A concrete and wood planter by Pierre Costa from Futurewoods in Cape Town. Follow him on instagram, or contact to get yours
This is by me, Pierre, each week I post three things that grabbed my attention, and that I like. You can also sign up for the newsletter version here
