Welcome to Worlds Fair Nano! Meredith here, social coordinator and resident millennial of DW. I explored the first-in-class future festival in Brooklyn this past weekend and had an amazing time learning all about the future of our world; everything from food and product to VR and biomechanics.
Here are the top 3 categories that caught my attention and you should know about:
Woah! My mind was absolutely blown while learning about the future of VR & AR at the panel on Saturday morning. Ultimately, the experience is making the impossible, possible by making something far away close. The coolest thing about this was a company that had partnered with the African Wildlife Foundation in creating a VR were people can get up close & personal with the animals and in turn want to help in their conservation efforts.
My fav food was the “Beyond Meat” food truck where I tried a completely plant based burger. YUM!
Some facts about Beyond Meat
My own delicious burger!
Also I tried a snack made with cricket flour by SEEK and learned about NURAVINE the future of growing your own food & plants in your home.
Now for the cool part.
The future of mans best friend. Imagine a world where you take your dog everywhere with Dog Parker!
The future of safety. Meet Athena, the newest form of wearable safety accessories.
The future of getting around. Zip the street with the Boosted Board!
The future of personal assistants. Meet Sanbot S1. All the perks without the attitude!
Overall, it was the coolest Saturday I have had in a long time. The Worlds Fair Nano is coming to the west coast in January, so if you are out that way, don’t miss it! I know I’m already planning on signing up for next years NYC show.
In the name of the future (and print & pattern),
