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:

VR 

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.

FOOD

My fav food was the “Beyond Meat” food truck where I tried a completely plant based burger. YUM!

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),
