Bing and Big Think bring you For Humankind, a pop up this weekend that showcases new technology and the creative minds behind it. Photobioreactors fueled by algae, soccer balls that create electricity, apps that stalk your friends like a bloodhound and an open-source industrial tool producer.
For Humankind runs this weekend, June 30 and July 1, from 10a-6p on Saturday and 11a-3p on Sunday. It’s free as a flying computerized brain-scanning insect and more interesting than Stephen Hawking’s mind. Come down to Openhouse 201 Mulberry for the ridiculously creative pop up. Participants include:
Hux helps groups like TED and NASA create digital experiences.
Bodega Algae develops scalable algae photobioreactors.
