"I wish technology was still a luxury, and not a necessity for the general public. We are so dependent on our phones, internet and everything else that we forget to see the world IRL, not just from behind a screen."

IF YOU COULD INVENT ANY PIECE OF TECHNOLOGY, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Contact lenses that change depending on your surroundings! Like night vision, shades when it’s sunny, or maybe they could turn everything a shade of rosy pink/pale blue when you’re having a bad day!

 

WHAT IS THE DEVELOPMENT YOU LOOK FORWARD TO THE MOST?

Holography! I never get to see my mom or dad, and it would be so nice to call them and have a lil’ 4D version of them with me!

 

IN THIS TIME OF RAPID CHANGE, IS THERE SOMETHING OLD SCHOOL YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE OF?

I wish people would call more! Texting is annoying, drawn out and often misinterpreted. I just appreciate how personal a phone call is.
