Hello friends of innovation!


If there is one video you watch this week, let it be the one by Benedict Evans, one of the smartest thinkers around with a good view on the future. But if you watch more, get inspired by sports innovation and social innovation amongst others! 

It's time to tackle the hard problems! Health for example.

How are machine learning and crypto technology changing retail, manufacturing, marketing, health and so much more? Once a year inspirational thinker and speaker Benedict Evans of investor Andreessen Horowitz talks about the future he sees. A must view! In the past decades we tackled easy problems, Evans says, now we're moving into the hard stuff.

The 2020 Olympics in Japan will be fueled with ambitious innovation. This is what the organisation promises: 1: Powering the games with 100% renewable energy / 2: Turning old phones into medals / 3: Driverless taxis for guests / 4: Solar roads / 5: Robots will translate Japanese for foreign guests. That's the spirit!

Get rid of the moving parts!

No moving parts any more thanks to an 'ionic wind', is that a future for drones? It might be. It is early days, but interesting none the less to see how MIT progresses with 'high powered electrodes to ionise and accelerate air particles'.

Pay with your eyes

These are the blockchain examples we like: use your eyes to pay and let the blockchain keep an eye on your account. EyePay is being used in the Azraq Refugee Camp of the UNHCR in Jordan. Iris recognition technology helps to identify a person in the supermarket, the blockchain makes sure there is enough money left to shop.

Just dig it

Just Diggit is an organisation specialised in landscape restoration. Their motto: 'If we can warm up the air, we can also cool it down." For example, they do so by digging rain water harvesting bunds with local communities. Together with digital design company Dept they came up with a digital wallet that brings donors and local workers together. A donor transfers funds into a digital wallet, a farmer digs a bund and makes a picture of it. When a trained local approves the work, a fixed fee is transferred to the farmer's wallet.
