The metamodern is the era of the individual and the end of the corporate-conglommoes running the global world.  The peer to peer network of the IoT is still in the beginning stages of complete uptake and overtake, but the ability now lives in every industry; especially in the financial industry.  Money is no longer gold or platinum or silver standards, MetaMoney is cryptocurrency, livin P2P because that’s what real digital currency provides. No middle-man conglommo to decide and pressure into their percentages, it’s about peer to peer, and no going back or complaining to anyone.

Concept Vehicles, Your Living Room And Life

By: Forbes Contributor – Jennifer Hicks

Microsoft MSFT +0.57% started something when it rolled out the Xbox with Kinect in 2010. The optical sensors in Kinect allowed players to use gesture to control and play video games. Now, a long (or short depending on how you look at it) six years after that tech hit the gaming world, gesture is making its way into other markets, including your home, cars and other everyday life activities.

INTELLIGENT BUILDINGS, THE IOT HOME VERSION

INTELLIGENT BUILDINGS, THE IOT HOME VERSION

Living in our metamodern world implies that the individual is in charge.  It implies that within our lifestyle, we have control over our environment, which we do, which we always have at the least, tried to have, and it also implies that technology will somehow be involved; including our intelligent buildings, the IoT home version is here now, and burgeoning.

VR ON THE CHEAP, OR MAKE IT YOURSELF

By:  @MsMobileConverg

Virtual Reality glasses are necessary to become immersed within the VR experience.  We have written about the virtual experience before. The ability to put on glasses, and forget what truthfully surrounds, and become one with your environment is immersive, to say the least.  Now, you can experience vr on the cheap, or make it yourself.

The escapism, the singleness, the individualist approach to the immersion is so very #metamodern.

THE NEWLY DISCOVERED TOUGHEST AND MOST PRACTICAL MATERIAL

THE NEWLY DISCOVERED TOUGHEST AND MOST PRACTICAL MATERIAL

By:  Rockwell Valentine

Have you ever wondered what the toughest and most practical material on Earth is? To answer your question the answer is, diamond. Recently scientists from the University of Cambridge have been trying to find an alternative material to diamond. The reason they are trying to discover this is because diamond is not very practical, although it is very useful when it comes to cutting material or being used as a tool, it is surprisingly very unstable. When this substance is heated above 800 degrees Celsius its chemical properties in air shift, and it begins to react with iron. You would certainly not want this to happen when constructing steel.
