As you know, Tech Cocktail will have our first Vancouver event on July 9th, working with the World Future Society and Futurists:BetaLaunch. We’ve been posting about all the local companies who will be demoing as part of Tech Cocktail, but we’d also like to share with you some of the future-thinking projects that are part of the Futurists:BetaLaunch, which will also be on display between July 9th and 10th. Some of them may be familiar as they’ve been part of Tech Cocktail in the past; others will be new, and we encourage you to check them out.
On July 9-10 in Vancouver, the World Future Society and 1X57 will showcase a dozen innovations and technologies with Futurists:BetaLaunch, a “tech petting zoo” which offers a vision of the future to the 1,000 futurists gathering for WorldFuture 2011, the Society’s annual conference.
For this inaugural event:
“We had over 60 excellent submissions…and could accept a handful of entries,” said Lisa Donchak, Google associate and one of the F:BL judges. “We were surprised and impressed by the quality of each submission.… We hope WorldFuture 2011 attendees enjoy getting up close and personal with the final selections. We’ll be exhibiting a phenomenal range of inventions, big and small,” she said in a taped segment, available on the Futurists: BetaLaunch website.
Special guest, Dale Dougherty, editor and publisher of MAKE magazine, and co-founder of O’Reilly Media, Inc., will be speaking in conjunction with the launch of Futurists: BetaLaunch.
