Wired NextFest Part I

Written By: Gary on June 25, 2005 No Comment

So part of the Chicago trip was to go to NextFest and run by Wired Magazine and highly sponsored by GE. It was on Navy Pier and they had all sorts of new technologies on display. I’ll be doing multiple-posts about them over the next few days (weeks?).

Me, the guy into all the gizmos and gadgets did look at more than a few of them and say “Why?” They were just that far out that I couldn’t see any kind of application for them.


There were lots of cool space stuff: ships, robots, solar powered material and more.

A lot of VR related things, so of it new and not ready to go and some a bit old (several years) that I still haven’ seen hit the streets.

Motorola had a lot of phones, just about anything interesting was “out in Japan but not here, yet”, “concept only” or “years away” . Generally, in my experience, most phone demonstrations go that way.

More later….
