I’ll leave it as an exercise for the reader to check out the full list of lifehack-style products & service innovations over at design-juggernaut IDEO,
-But By Far, my favorite of the bunch is the Snow White Evil Queen/Ghost of Christmas Yet-To-Come -style Aging Mirror.
I don’t know how far out they wanted to take the concept in its proposed future technological reach.
-But [at least in its most-blown-out-future-form] this could take a whole host of personal data/lifestyle inputs, run them through a very sophisticated AI, like a Google Knowledge Graph on steroids.
And then through its primary genius of insight: Show You Back A PICTURE of what you yourself might look like, if things continued on the present course.
-Maybe the system could even present the developments time-progression style, like Anthony Cerniello’s beautiful yet haunting project, “Danielle”.
I always remember designer friends advising pictures over ideological discussions with clients, and how effective that approach usually is.
Perhaps it will work with Psychology, Planning & Health?
