Posted in Future, Future Proof, Futurist

AirPods have been incredibly profitable for Apple since the company launched the product in late 2016. Unfortunately, the device carries a massive future liability that Apple executives and shareholders need to consider today.

A Future of More Beautiful Cities

Posted in Beautiful Future, City, Construction, Future

The future will become more beautiful one step at a time. On April 22, New York City–following on the heels of Denver, Portland, San Francisco, and Toronto–took a small step in this direction by passing legislation requiring new buildings to have “green roofs.” In addition to cooling down a city by mitigating the urban heat island…

Applying Sunlight to a Dirty Industry

It has been said that “sunlight is the best disinfectant.” In this spirit, WattTime, a nonprofit artificial intelligence firm, plans on using satellite imagery and artificial intelligence to precisely track the air pollution coming out of every single power plant in the world.

“The future is here–it is just not evenly distributed.” The above quotation from famed science fiction writer William Gibson has always resonated with me because the future isn’t evenly distributed–it’s often on the fringe of society. Over time, however, fringe ideas move into the mainstream. (I was humorously reminded of this gradual shift during the…

Last month, my family and I hiked the Inca Trail and visited Machu Picchu. I snapped this photo for unknown reasons on the second day of the trek. Upon reviewing my photos weeks later, it took my breath away. I never consciously saw the light beam and I certainly did not–either consciously or unconsciously–see the…
