It’s important to keep an eye on the future, to keep track on current innovation and in particular see what the wild and wacky are thinking, you never know there might just be something in it.

Take for instance this flm below, done as it happens by Microsoft, it’s more about communication, and if you follow it back to youtube there a lot more, but back to this film, look deeper than the technology, look at the way materials are used, and the way we interact with every day furniture and the fabric of the building. Now suddenly this future film it touching on an area I know well, should I be taking note, is there a product here, or should I be thinking about the basic design of my next house.

What ever it’s so important to look and not just glance, look deeper, for instance glass is a material that seems to be forefront in a lot of these films, both in its internal use, its external use and in everyday objects, Apple was not wrong to use Gorilla glass to front both the back and front of the current iPhone, its sustainable, reusable and gan be easily laminated with circuits, it can turn easily from cloudy to translucent in less than a second.

We have seen lighting follow us around for some time and finaly it might be reality, I spoke of the room stat only a few days ago, and smart meters are finaly being installed, has the smart house finaly arrives,,,,,,, ! keep looking but above all, its important to a technologist to know ,,,,,,,,,,
