2 days of over 100 incredible future tech demos, cutting edge innovation, future food, and 40 epic speakers available for the general public to experience.
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Worlds Fair Nano, the World's Greatest Future Festival, is returning to San Francisco March 10 & 11, 2018, at the epic waterfront Pier 48 with a 120,000 sqft showcase of incredible hands-on future technology experiences, cutting-edge innovation demos, future food tastings, outdoor food festival, and talks from over 40 renowned speakers.
Worlds Fair Nano is the Nation's premier consumer-facing showcase of futurist ideas and tech hardware aimed at informing the general public about the future. This year's Fair will continue to deliver the opportunity for attendees to see, experience, learn, and share more in the rapidly emerging subculture of futurism and futurists.
“We’re excited to be bringing the fair back to San Francisco in 2018,” said Michael Weiss, Co-Founder and CEO of Worlds Fair USA. “Last year we saw almost 10,000 people attend, and this year we’re coming back with a bigger venue and an even more incredible lineup of futuristic technology and innovators who are on the front lines of creating future that will be changing our world. We started this event because there’s no place for the general public to access the bleeding edge of innovation and gain the inspiration that such an experience provides. The alternative events are hundreds or thousands of dollars or industry-specific, and that sucks. Everyone should have access to the future, and this year we’re hoping to give even more people that chance.”
Exhibiting tech demos include Azoth Pyramid, OneWheel, Ryno Motors, PureRockets, HardlightVR.
Attendees can expect to experience over 100 futuristic tech demos and witness incredible future innovations. Among those, OneWheel (https://onewheel.com/) is one of several electric rideables letting guests experience the future of personal mobility on WFN’s 500-foot racetrack. OneWheel is a revolution in personal transportation; a self-balancing, one-wheeled electric skateboard. Go fast, have fun, feel like you’re flying.
Also making one-wheeled transportation a future trend, Ryno Motors (http://rynomotors.com) will be showcasing their one-wheeled electric ‘motorcycle’ that looks straight out of a sci-fi movie. Ryno Motors’ transitional vehicle is a new breed of travel whose mission is to make personal transportation less limiting and more exciting, letting you go anywhere you might walk.
Jeff Dillon, founder of PureRockets (http://purerockets.com), will be showcasing a heavy lifting turbine drone he’s created that will be used in the future for medical rescue operations on Earth, and as a crane for heavy lifting projects on Mars.
HardlightVR (http://www.hardlightvr.com) will fit guests with their industry leading haptic suits, allowing users to feel the virtual world around them. Integrated tracking maps the body in virtual space letting the wearer feel haptic (vibrational) feedback within VR games like boxing, first-person shooters, sword fighting, and even mech battles.
AZoth Pyramid (http://peacemuseum.wixsite.com/aethernautworks/azoth-pyramid), a project from the P.e.a.c.e. Museum, offers a 5-minute immersive ‘self-explorative experience of expansion’ through the syncing of light and audio technologies while sitting in a physical pyramid. Integrating LEDs, infinity mirrors, and EEG sensors assist in stimulating the feeling of euphoria while helping researchers explore the leading edge of consciousness.
Futuristic Talks include Sentient Android BINA48, Alien Seeker Seth Shostak, Future Food Innovator Josh Tetrick, and Blockchain Leader Melanie Swan
BINA48, one of the world’s most advanced social androids developed by Hanson Robotics, was based on the mind file of Bina Aspen, co-founder of the Terasem Movement. Bina48 is designed to be a social robot that can interact based on information, memories, values, and beliefs collected about an actual person. Bina48, with assistance from handler Bruce Duncan, will be talking about the Future of Living with Androids and taking questions from the crowd after her talk.
Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer at the SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) Institute, has been passionate about meeting Aliens since he was 10. At the SETI Institute, Shostak helps lead the exploration for life in the universe and famously “bet everybody a cup of coffee” at recent Worlds Fair Nano in NY that we will discover intelligent alien life within the next 20 years. Shostak also hosts a monthly radio show "Skeptic Check" and is frequently seen on television including appearances on Naked Science and The Colbert Report.
Josh Tetrick, CEO and Founder of JUST (formerly Hampton Creek Foods), started in 2011 to provide alternative food sources that addressed the world’s health and sustainability problems. Tetrick's first major consumer product with JUST, Just Mayo, can be found in stores nationwide. JUST also invented Just Scramble, which scrambles and tastes like eggs but is actually made from mung bean, and is completely absent of cholesterol and antibiotics. Tetrick is now conquering the world’s meat supply by inventing clean meat- meat and seafood cells grown in lab with plants providing nutrients, similar to brewing beer and making cheese. No slaughtered animals, less water wasted, less land needed, fewer foodborne illnesses = exponential efficiency. Listen to Josh talk about The Future of Food and also have a chance to win a VIP tour of JUST’s facilities which will include a clean meat tasting!
Melanie Swan is the author of the best-selling book Blockchain: Blueprint for a New Economy, a Technology Theorist in the Philosophy Department at Purdue University, a faculty member at Singularity University and the University of the Commons, a Tech Futurist, and founder of DIYgenomics and the Institute for Blockchain Studies. The Institute for Blockchain Studies is an independent non-profit research institute examining the economic and social impact of blockchain technology. With Bitcoin, Ehtereum, Ripple, and the rest of the cryptocurrency world going crazy, the blockchain is quickly becoming one of the most influential technologies of the 21st century. Swan’s education, expertise, and concentration in blockchain led her to speak on The Future of the Blockchain at Worlds Fair Nano.
