These are a few of my favorite things
Thanks for reading, a friend referred to this little blog as a three course meal, so thank you for sitting around my table every friday!
Have a good one.
1. Made by Google
So Google launched their new phone this week, PIXEL, even though it looks like the iPhone 6 at first glance, the inside is pretty exciting stuff. Google CEO Sundar Pichai is exactly right when he said at the keynote:
"When I look ahead at where computing is headed, it's clear to me that we are heading, evolving from a mobile first to an A.I. first world"
And that in short is what Google is banking on with its new phone. Being able to control the entire process from software to hardware has its advantages, as Apple has taught us. Pixel is packed with AI and optimised for VR, arguably the two hottest trends in tech today.

2. More skin tech
Last time I showed you some tech stick on tattoos, that allow you to control devices etc. This week is another skin tech wearable, thingy. How our devices communicate to us needs to change, in my opinion, they are too disruptive and need to be gentle nudge-ers, rather than screaming infants with LED lights for eyes (that'll stick in your head).
In response, the Interactive Architecture Lab at the Bartlett School of Architecture created a project called Sarotis. It’s a provocative proof-of-concept of what our world could be like if our bodies could feel data rather than simply see it.
It's pneumatic, meaning it can be triggered to inflate and deflate based on how it is programmed to respond to the world around it. The soft material gently pushes against the wearer's own body, acting almost as a second skin that reacts to the invisible waves of communication around us.

3. The Red Addidas
And just because I am a mad fan of sportswear at the moment, the new red adidas ultraBOOST. Enjoy.
