Hi Chris, great article. Have you also considered the rise of bio hackers?
Also, the gaming industry is driving things forward with things like kinect and hollowlens. These have far reaching impacts on online retailing.
Whilst it’s a bit ichy, porn is driving some of these advancements and innovations also. With places like Japan set to have population decreases due to predicted lower marriage rates, this is in part being driven by software and virtual relationships. I wonder when these technologies will be so good and accessible that global birthrates decline? Scary and Orwellian thoughts for a dystopian future.
