From Surgery-Aiding Soft Robots to Human Connection Hotel Suites

 - Sep 23, 2018
The September 2018 world trends push the boundaries of human connectivity and challenge the enhancements that aid our progression. An example of this is Harvard University's innovative process of micro-fabrication, developed to support surgical needs. It essentially enables small robotic devices to serve as a tool during invasive surgical procedures to efficiently perform tasks.

Another example is Kimpton Hotels' new social experiment 'Room 301' which delves into the concept of authentic human connectivity. Travelers from all over the globe are given the opportunity to participate in the series of activities in rooms that are designed to explore meaningful connections. This pushes for self-reflection and encourages creative thinking while recognizing humanity's deep craving for authentic connections and meaningful life experiences.
