"Tinkerer, tale teller, soul searcher, web sailer, life rich, time poor, beggars belief"
I live a fun filled creative life where the work and non-work boundaries get more blurred. I am a very lucky person who does actually get paid to think, and to try and do it as far away from the square as possible.
The more I look through all 600 plus concepts, the more I like this one because I want to go to this supermarket. As far as Apps that tell the story, why not make it easier by installing simple readers at each distance marker point, where you can scan a barcode and hear more about the product, how it is produced and how far it has travelled?
If apartments had shared freezers, or a 'freezer core' built in that provided personal fridge freezer space in each apartment that was chilled by one unit - then imagine the savings in individual freezer manufacturing production.
Only challenge would be - what do you do if or when it breaks down and you can't take your frozen goods to your neighbour to save them?
