the generations to come. Something that was interesting to see as a concept was
the google glass – I can even think that due to our technological advancement in
biotech, it’s not farfetched to see it evolving into an imbedded device in our
bodies, these gadgets will connect us to everything around us. I know that
sounds crazy, but what we’re seeing now in the industry is at the tip of the
iceberg in terms of sharing our personal experiences, as currently we have started
