Radical Technology: The Future!

I have spoken to a handful of founders of tech start-ups who idolize and take a lesson out of Apple’s book. We learn from the successes and failures of others and Steve Jobs of Apple was no exception. Jobs took a few lessons from Edwin Land’s experiences when he was envisioning products at Apple. Like Jobs and Land, every innovator has a few characteristics in common such as bending the rules, embracing failure, and a passion for what they do. I would like to share a few of the latest gadgets that innovators are developing today which will challenge and change the current standards tomorrow.
