  • PERSON: Alex Honnold. The guy doesn't perceive limits the way most of us do. He made history on Saturday when he became the first free climber (meaning no ropes or other safety gear) to scale the nearly 3,000-foot wall dubbed El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. 
  • PRODUCT: Nix. If you sweat regularly (and I hope you do), keep this on your radar! A wearable, sweat-based hydration sensor, designed by Harvard researchers, for athletes, soldiers, laborers, diabetics, and other people whose safety and performance depend on staying hydrated. 
  • CONCEPT: Flywheel. A mechanical device designed to store rotational energy (think those spinning tops you played with as a kid). The inspiration for our experiential learning and leadership program for high school and college students. 
  • BOOK: We Are Legion (We Are Bob) (Bobiverse Book 1) by Dennis Taylor. With all the hype around artificial intelligence right now, here's a fun sci-fi take on it.
