Kickstart My Heart With A 3D Printed Robotic Hand


My desires are simple. I want the impossible to be realized, and I want the future to get here faster. With today’s technology and advances in the sciences, it’s really not a tall order. While we may not have hot tub time machines in our backyards to expedite the process, we do have some titillating products on the market that are opening minds to what is possible on a tangible level. Yes, I’m talking about 3D printing. All the rage at SXSW, the Kairos Society…

Dell Shines A Light On How 100 World Changers Are Redefining Tech


This past weekend, I went to see the DreamWorks animation “Rise of the Guardians,” which follows the story of Santa Claus, the Tooth Ferry, the Easter Bunny, the Sandman, and Jack Frost as they come together to protect the children of the world against Pitch Black, aka the Boogeyman. Suffice to say, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, and it got me thinking about the rise of human guardians roaming the real world–the change makers who dedicate their lives to improving society through entrepreneurship and philanthropy….

The Power Of Community & Social Enterprise, LA Style


Guest post by Michael DeHart When a business has the single goal of generating individual success and profit, they tend to create quid pro quo partnerships. These alliances spawn out of a need to pool resources to stay competitive, but once the problem is resolved the partnership is disregarded. Back in July of 2011 when Google+ came out swinging touting its superior ability to connect friends with integrated video conferencing, Facebook and Skype quickly joined forces leveling the playing field.

5 Ways Augmented Reality Can Change The World


It’s been a long time coming, but augmented reality (AR), or the overlaying of the digital world onto the real world, is entering mainstream marketing. Just ask a Google employee or two sporting the search engine giant’s Project Glass augmented reality glasses. Yes, we are clearly becoming cyborgs. From invisible pop-up stores that are turned into retail wonderlands to Amazon’s augmented reality shopping app, Flow, virtually sensitized tools designed to enhance retail experiences are about to infiltrate the marketplace. With the help of augmented reality,…

The Startup World And Social Enterprise Are Still Boys Clubs


Guest post by Ethan Austin A few weeks ago I attended South by Southwest (SXSW) for the first time ever. I think the best way to describe it was kind of like a Las Vegas for nerds.

SXSW is about randomly meeting cool people while in line for breakfast…
