Virtual Reality Hangouts, Healthy Vending Machine Food, Solving Mobile Keyboards

Algramo is a Santiago based company aiming to deliver inexpensive, healthy food to low income people in Latin America via vending machines (via PSFK). As in many parts of the world, food deserts mean people in urban low income areas can't get access to healthy food at reasonable prices. A solution for lots of communities? Cathi Bond weighs in. The future of virtual reality has long promised that we'd hang out together with our friends virtually, from the comfort of our separate living rooms. Maybe now that VR headsets are nearly ready to go, the time has (nearly) come! AltspaceVR is designing social hangouts for the VR future (via Technology Review). Would you do socialize with pals virtually? Go to concerts together? Or would you miss the meatspace connection? Plus, Cathi mentions TextBlade. If you don't like tapping things out on your mobile touchpad, this may be for you!

  1. Interesting concept with the vending machines. Does the food come individually portioned and wrapped or how does that work? I have this vision of the whole meal sliding out into the pail which seems a little messy….

    • Hi ther Archie. I will send the company an email and see if I cant dig up more info. Nora pinned me to the wall a bit on this story as well, so clearly I need to get more clarity on the process. Thanks for writing. Cathi
