The New New — Issue Eleven
In which new business models, pre-service invasions, and material innovations arrive in time for us to go D2A before the coming quantum apocalypse.
This irregular — and often irreverent — roundup of brand experiences, culture-driven experiments, and scoops of perception is back for the eleventh time.
From new worlds through the real world, ending with a leap into our quantum future, let’s go.
D2A, the next big business model
DNA to Face, a new method of facial recognition
Nano-Camera, the size of a grain of salt
Stretchable and Washable Batteries, may soon power a wearable electronics boom
Clarus fibers, cotton without the shedding plastic microfibers
Tufted Rugs, the handmade craze du jour
Gas Marbles, bubbles that last up to 465 days
IZ Metal, a three-dimensional paint for tattooing your car
Contactless Thermal Drilling Robot, cuts through the hardest rocks on Earth
Pre-service Tip Invasion, making it less likely we will return
Quantum Apocalypse, when today’s encryption standards are easily cracked
If you have a new intrigue of your own or see something I missed, let’s discuss it here.
The New New will be back again (at some point).
