Hologram tech shown off at CES

And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

I get the feeling from this article that a problem with CES is that it is very much a "futurism as capitalist creation" sort of event.  I have not attended, or paid much attention, so I really don't have a definitive opinion on the matter.



Forget the Alexa-powered toasters at CES, these innovations will really shape 2018






As CES rolls out troves of new Alexa-enabled toasters, mirrors and even shower heads, the gathering has become just another symbol of Silicon Valley’s disconnect with the needs of everyday people.


Meanwhile, we had recently challenged Silicon Valley to find new solutions for life stages where we could all use a little help, including: 1) graduating with student loans, 2) moving to a city and paying rent, 3) becoming a parent, and 4) living comfortably post-retirement.


2018 is the year we can finally look forward to exciting developments in each of these categories. In the coming year, we’ll see major shifts, including the biggest brands competing for the attention of baby boomers, not millennials; new apartments in cities like NY charging half the rent you’re paying now; and even checking your fertility becoming as easy as swiping right.


Unfortunately, none of these innovations are things you will be hearing about at CES. And so at the turn of the year, I sat down with Dr. Oz, Bobbi Brown, President Fox and others on our Kairos board to map out the big changes we expect to see in 2018.


See linked article for further discussion.
