Discover more from The Glimpse
🔮 Roundups #38
Bacteria to treat cancer, manufacturing in space, and omniscient AI for your computer.
Every Friday I round up 5 technological advancements that give us a Glimpse into the future 🔮 After all, the future is already here, it’s just not evenly distributed.
Short note for my readers
You may have noticed - I’ve recently rebranded from Making Product Sense to The Glimpse. As I was writing my “year in review” for the newsletter, I realized that I tended to write about products that were pushing the boundaries of technology. And, according to the poll I put out, those deep dives are your favorite articles as well.
“The future is already here, it’s just not evenly distributed.”
It’s easy to miss the mind-blowing advancements in technology because they tend to exist on the edges. You can think of The Glimpse as your weekly dose of the future. Each week, I’ll continue to write a new deep dive on a company or technology that’s bringing the future to life from AI to AR/VR, space to robotics, manufacturing to synbio.
Most of you are product leaders, founders or investors who, like me, have a vested interest in emerging technology. My hope is that you’ll not only enjoy these explorations but learn something from them that you can apply to your own work as well.
Catch you next week!
If you missed it on Tuesday, I wrote about Ginkgo Bioworks, the platform company for synthetic biology, helping companies design and grow living organisms that can be used for everything from growing fuel, to concrete, to medicine. Yep, you read that right. Companies are literally growing concrete. The future is gonna get weird.
