Hollywood Imaginings May be Truer Than We Think!

Mad Max Fury Road, the recent epic sci-fi blockbuster, has some pretty impressive adaptive equipment on display throughout the film. It got me to thinking about other Hollywood portrayals of adaptive equipment, and curious about how far have we actually come in 2015, with their real life counterparts. How much of the Sci-Fi Hollywood technologies shown in films and on TV, are actually possible now? Remember Geordie La Forge from Star Trek the Next Generation? That’s right, the visually impaired character who had those rad eighties looking glasses than enabled him to see. Have they, or something like them been invented yet? Well yes it seem they have, and they can be purchased… for a price. http://esighteyewear.com/what-is-esight

Managing the Generational Divide

During a water cooler conversation about music recently with a much younger coworker, (a 21 yr old millennial) I mentioned an encounter with a pop music icon of my youth, (I’m a Gen X.) He then made it quite clear that he had never heard of said pop star, which besides making me feel really old and outdated, apparently absolutely astounded my other older coworker (a baby boomer) and had him proclaim “How can that be even be possible?…. in this, the internet age...for you to not have heard of him?….Wow!"
