A Nobel Christmas

Published by on december 23, 2016

Everyone has an opinion about the building plans for the Nobel Centre. We’ve a more concrete architectural proposal to wish you all a Nobel Christmas: build the Nobel Centre in the form of the Nobel Prize medal.

Millions will take selfies and send to them friends all over the world to show that they “received” the Nobel Prize. A part of the structure can be built over water which visitors must go in order to see the whole building. Whatever its location—on the water, or in the water—Santa Claus will like our medal.

The Nobel banquet can be held outside on a glass bridge, with a transparent floor, ceiling and walls so that people attend the party from anywhere around the dock. Walking on water is not so difficult with modern technology, strengthening Stockholm’s image as a city by the water. Visitors and media will all talk about the experience. To boost the feeling, a stage can be placed under the floor and underwater, where many dancers can perform. When the crowd is doing the wave around the waters on social media, even the Swedish King can smile as he stands on the glass bridge.

Biggest WOW at #slush16: 3D food printer Foodini from Natural Machines

Published by on december 7, 2016

Slush was amazing, but the innovation that was the biggest WOW for me was the 3D food printer Foodini from Natural Machines. Lynette Kucsma did an excellent speech and are in this video explaining the future step by step, or plate by plate:

CNN has named Lynette one of only seven ‘tech superheroes’ to watch, and Fortune says she “wants to sell the 21st century’s version of the microwave.” (As in, a device will revolutionize every kitchen, outpacing the functionality of the last kitchen revolution: the microwave.) She believes that people would be healthier if everybody eats freshly made wholesome meals and snacks. But, it needs to be easier and faster for everyone to create healthy foods made with fresh ingredients. So she’s helping to build a new generation kitchen appliance. Lynette is a co-founder and CMO at Natural Machines, the makers of Foodini: the first 3D food printer + IoT kitchen appliance to contribute to a healthy eating lifestyle. Foodini makes all kinds of savory and sweet foods, using fresh, real ingredients.

Will Airbnb transform into a peace project?

Published by on november 27, 2016

When I listen to CEO Brian Chesky, Airbnb I see how they create magic with innovation by making more out of our life journey.

In other words, they are now developing earth into a authentic amusement park (nothing wrong with that).

It would be interesting to have a chat with Brian about how they could transform Airbnb into an peace project (bringing people together is the opposite of war…).
