Scenario prompts are the first step of strategy development. If you want to improve your own strategic planning abilities, we have developed a simple four-step programme that will help develop the collective strategy muscle of your organisation. If you want more information, feel free to contact me.
Topics to consider are intelligent failure, liquid computers, strategy, brain implants, extended reality, eating insects, Africa, airless bike tires, tiny combustion engines, holograms, innovators under 35 and full-body avatars.
Holograms and avatars, consider what extended reality will mean to your business in the future.
Intelligent Failures vs. Costly Mistakes: Navigating the Innovation Paradox
If you’re not failing, you’re not journeying into new territory
Liquid Computer Made From DNA Comprises Billions of Circuits
A team researchers has now come up with a DNA integrated circuit (DIC). Their liquid computer’s gates can form an astonishing 100 billion circuits.
What Makes A Strategy “Good?”
You need to pick the battles that will prove decisive, the ones that matter and which you can win.
Alleviating paralysis with new brain-reading technologies
The device has three parts: 128 electrodes placed in the brain, electronics that amplify the signals collected and a device that packages the information and wirelessly transmits it to a computer. All this hardware had to be miniaturised so it can be implanted.
Virtual-reality tech is fast becoming more real
Welcome to the world of “extended reality”
Eating Insects May Trigger Benefits For Metabolism, Study Finds
To this day, many mammals still eat insects, even some humans. Not only are insects safe for our species to consume, they can also provide vital nutrients, like protein, and can be harvested sustainably.
Chasing the sun: Africa’s burgeoning renewables sector
With the clean energy transition underway, Africa is looking to rapidly expand its use of solar energy and other renewables
Airless bike tires made with NASA technology are now on sale
The tire is made from a shape memory alloy, making it elastic like rubber yet strong like titanium.
Using tiny combustion engines to power very tiny robots
Hologram Runway Wows Crowds at Amsterdam Fashion Week
As the show commenced, lights darkened and six projectors (three on each side of the stage) fired away, simulating the fluid movements of six-and-a-half foot-tall avatars who strutted—and occasionally swam—down the runway, sporting designs from nine digital fashion houses
Innovators Under 35
AI, computing, robotics, climate, computing and biotechnology.
