IS OUR FOOD REAL?

VIRTUALITY trend (see our #THENOWAGE 2018-18 Forecast) is impressively rising to feed the empowerment expectations of the “Unlimited” target.

Virtual Reality has been conventionally thought to be used in the market of video games; but it is now going into the territory. Fortune Magazine showcases its virtual realities limitless possibilities for implementation and reports that consumers are all for it – in fact – they’re eating it up.

Virtual Reality As A Trend

The Virtual Reality trend is one that we at Baba are watching closely closely for the 2018-2019 year. With its widespread integration into myriads of different markets, it is a crucial concept for businesses to consider in their new investments for advertising. As well as in social media scenes where consumers are using the technology to post their respective platforms. From an advertising standpoint, virtual reality is an investment that should be quickly considered.

Fashion for people, not for boys or girls

We live in a society where gender differences are no longer so marked.  Starting now from very tender ages:  John Lewis department store (UK) has just launched  a gender neutral production dedicated to kids. A trend talking about an idea of sex neutrality that drives another way to think body, love, and socialization under the umbrella of digital world. Giulia Ceriani (baba CEO) has dealt with this topic on D_Repubblica pages. Here the link to her comments.

Are we ready for Robotic couture?

Maybe we are about to find out the answer to this question. On September 21st, Anouk Wipprecht will be at “Meet the Media Guru” and we will be there too to hear about her experience. Her work mix Fashion with IoT and wearable technology. A new way to think about fashion is coming, and we are seriously considering its implications. Can clothes be a support in people’s daily life supplying, for example, handicaps and physical problems? Fashion is no longer only an esthetical fact.

 

#inversion by Zygmunt Bauman

After the age of utopias of tomorrow and the one that denies any utopia, today we live the era of the utopia of the past. This is the main theory in “Retrotopia” the latest book by Zygmunt Bauman (in bookstores since September 7th, Italian edition by Laterza).

SHALL WE BE ABLE TO CEASE OUR ROUTED TECH OBSESSION ON VACATIONS?

Not such an easy-going attitude to be adopted, apparently. Tech dominance does not hold the grip, and we are all compliant with that mood. Have a look to a few and not even unexpected cues about what our suitcases full of tech gadgets consist of. No inversion on going on tech addiction.

#INVERSION: urgent change!

Extinction coat. The number of animals that surrounds us has been halved in one hundred years, from 1900 to 2015.

This depopulation has strong consequences on the planet: the “biological annihilation” represents a frightening assault on the foundations of human civilisation, according to the study just published on the journal “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences”.

Researchers say that the prospects don’t look good: “All signs point to ever more powerful assaults on biodiversity in the next two decades, painting a dismal picture of the future of life, including human life.”
