The future is now. You can be part of building it; it’s easy! Just listen to people and build something that can help them. The cost to building something has never been this low. If you are not building it your self you should at least know the disruptive landscapes. Martin goes trough technology in different stages such as wearables, computer machine interface and autonomous vehicles. But the final point is that you just need a small flic smart button fr $35 to start this journey.

On the aesthetic side we often see a combination of rubber, plastics and metals in a way that we usually see in smartphone designs.
