COCO ROCHA

 

ON: TECHNOLOGY

Known equally for her personality and her looks, Coco Rocha is a new breed of supermodel. As an early-adopter of many social media platforms, Rocha leveraged her large digital following to build her brand and cement her place in the ever-fickle modeling industry. She lives in New York with her husband and their young daughter.

If you could invent any piece of technology, what would it be?

I’d love to have a teleporter! There is truly nothing glamorous about traveling these days, so to be able to teleport anywhere in the world or universe with the snap of a finger would be unbelievably liberating.

 

If you could change one thing about how we live with technology, what would it be?

I think we are getting better at living with technology, but there’s still plenty of room for improvement. I’d love for people to be much more present when they’re together. I’d love to see firmer rules of social etiquette for when it is and isn’t appropriate or kind to pull out your phone in the company of others.

 

What is the development that you look forward to the most?

What Elon Musk is doing for the space industry is astounding. I think I will most likely live to see real civilian space travel, to Mars and beyond. I think it’s incredibly exciting and inspiring.

 

In this time of rapid change, is there something old school you would like to see more of?

Writing letters and cards is a soon to be forgotten art. It’s really a unique pleasure though, to get a hand written note from someone. A text or an email just does not compare.
