In a talk titled ‘Reading the future’ at the 2016 MPA Magazine Conference last week, James Hurman from Auckland-based innovation agency Previously Unavailable gave members of the magazine industry a glimpse at how the future of technology will transform day-to-day life.
Theo de Monchy is an innovation planner at Previously Unavailable. He discusses the future of convenience retail and an unmanned corner store in Sweden that runs on trust and a mobile app.
Lately, innovation has become less about inventing gadgets and more about creating amazing experiences for people. If you’ve been wondering why, advances in our understanding of happiness might hold the answer. Previously Unavailable's Theo De Monchy explains why this change came about and how companies can adapt.
