The NFT Handbook is Now Available

It’s rare for an emerging technology to get both its cultural moment of acclaim at the same time that it’s user-friendly and accessible to everyone. NFTs are among this rare class of emerging technologies. Many of you may know me from the days I was selling digital art back in 2015. I had created 23VIVI, […]

Inevitable/Human is Discontinuing Memberships

Due to the unfortunate circumstances, COVID-19 has had on our business, we’ve made the tough decision to discontinue the membership components of Inevitable/Human. We would like to thank all of our members for rocking with us these past few years. We’ve learned a lot and shared some incredible insights about the future amongst this community. […]

Helping You Make Decisions During the Pandemic

When the game is on the line what great athlete (or aspiring great athlete) is found sitting on the sidelines? Jordan, Brady, Gretzky, Phelps, Ali. No matter the circumstance, they were in the game. In the past few days, Ryan and I have toiled with a tough decision. Ultimately, we decided we couldn’t sit idly […]

Finding COVID-19 Therapies

Future thinking is a luxury. Only once you’ve achieved Physiological and Safety Needs on Maslow’s Hierarchy, can you then get back to dreaming and pondering the future. That’s the conclusion that the Inevitable/Human team has come to during the current COVID-19 pandemic. We felt that as future-thinkers, the best foresight we could practice was in […]

Apple News and COVID-19

Apple is holding, in my opinion, the biggest hand in this entire pandemic situation. They’ve got pocket aces, at least here in the United States, for one very big reason. Apple has the ability to ping approximately 100 million Americans at the same time. It’s an extremely huge responsibility that no other media company or device manufacturer […]

The Next Era of Workplace Software

The first thing I do when I hit the office is open Slack, Google Drive, and Asana. Three separate workplace software. Three augmentations of productivity. But how will the software that guides our work improve over time? Like anything, workplace software evolves. The three phases are: Siloed, singular work on one’s own software Collaborative work […]

Future of Packaging

I’m not going to lie, researching the state of consumer packaging and where it’s headed is very depressing. The enormity of the situation is too big for any one person to hypothesize solutions. And for every positive initiative, it seems like there’s lobbying to cancel its progress. We should be past the point of getting […]

A Cashless Society

The cries of a cashless society have been ringing for many years. And while the number of cash purchases is slowly declining, making up 30% of all transactions in the US. This plan of pure efficiency seems about as likely as us reaching a utopia. Possible, but not for at least a couple of generational power shifts. […]

3 Ways AR Face Filters Will Change the World

Who would’ve ever anticipated that one of the greatest impacts that facial recognition would have on society would be through Snapchat lenses? Face filters and AR lenses have become so much more than kitschy ways of spicing up how we communicate. AR filters have altered the way that people view themselves. Snapchat dysmorphia started to become […]

Banking the Unbanked

One of the great financial failures to this point in time is that 12 million Americans are still using payday loan stores and more than 10 million Americans use a check-cashing service. An instant paycheck deduction almost entirely because that person lacks a bank account. Tens of millions of Americans aren’t given the right financial avenues to save money, […]

AR-Based Messages

They say there’s no such thing as bad ideas, only bad timing. 3M was clearly a little ahead of the curve when they launched augmented reality sticky notes in 2012. It was a huge moment for AR, not in the sense of being able to write virtual notes. The major development was their use of cloud anchoring. […]

4 Major PharmaTech Innovations

When I think of innovation in pharmaceuticals, I think of the work that goes on in a lab for years, sometimes decades, to create a groundbreaking drug. But the innovation doesn’t stop once that drug leaves the lab. There are loads of inconsistencies and problems that occur once a drug is on the market that […]

Digital Art Marketplaces

Every day, millions of artists enter their studio and instead of picking up a brush, a pencil, or a can of spray paint, they power on their computers, tablets, and cameras. They are digital-native artists who, at the end of their creative process, have created a digital file. Does that digital file have value? Sentimental […]

Robot Nurses & Drone Window Washers

Anyone looking for future job security should go into nursing. The overall aging population is precipitating a massive need for nurses. A need so large that we may not be able to fill it with humans alone. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Employment Projections 2016-2026, Registered Nursing (RN) is listed among the top […]

Digital Health Guardian

How come YouTube can reliably recommend videos they know I’ll consume, but there isn’t a food search engine that’ll recommend healthy meals they know I’ll consume? How come Uber can always find the optimal route to my destination, but I’m completely unaware of an optimal route for my health? In an age when algorithms understand […]

Posture Mode

This behavior just isn’t sustainable. The entire world will be ruined if we keep this up. A decade from now, we’re all going to regret our actions. We’ll wish we’d done things differently. We’ll wish we hadn’t had such poor posture when using our phones and computers. If you don’t think that this is a […]

Computational Drug Design

The World Health Organization called it the world’s first “infodemic”. Social media has made it simple to spread fiction about the Coronavirus (or COVID-19). And when you stir up all the mud from the bottom of a pond, it’s difficult to get clean water. Especially in places where the spread of the virus is serious, […]
