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!
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.
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),
DW + Meredith
