Things are moving online so much and so quickly that all the techie hipsters get excited about things such as the Fliike, a physical Facebook like counter for storefronts, or the Little Printer from Berg that prints out daily news from your preselected websites. These all have some element of intimacy baked into them because they bring digital junkies into the real world, if only for a second, which is refreshing these days.
You wake up from a dream, happy with life, feeling that you want to give today. You walk over near your bedroom door and hold your phone against a soft glowing light that looks like the easy button. You hold it there for 3 seconds until the light turns green. You’ve just donated $10 to the American Red Cross. You will receive a thank you card from them in 3 days. After a month, you’ll have 20 of these cards sitting on your kitchen table so the women in your life can see how generous you are. Of course there is a smartphone app that records all of your donations, and you can reverse donations within 7 days if they were made by accident. The light will be sent to you for free after your initial $50 donation to one of the approved charities.
