For some reason I am wired to not be satisfied with the current state of the world and technology. I just don’t feel like things are “there” yet. Not where I expected to be or where I consider far enough. Not sure what gives me that idea, but I just have these mental goals for the world that we haven’t reached yet. Here are some things I’m hoping and waiting for: Transparent “phones”, fully glass/similar material True ubiquitous AR (everything in reality has info about it that pops up on your phone) Phoneless phones, something like Google Glass, but more … Read more

I love to build, create, think, read, design, and a laundry list of other things too numerous to list. Ideas are like children to me. They deserve to be born and at least given the chance at life. I haven’t typically shared my ideas publicly because I don’t know what they are good for or if they are useful. That is not the point I’ve learned. The point is to do what you love and help others.
