  2. 2. SCIENCE OF THE TIMETREND RESEARCH & INNOVATION NETWORK 5 ICONIC EXAMPLES WWW.SCIENCEOFTHETIME.COM | WWW.SIGNS-SEEDS.COM JOIN OUR MAILINGLIST The San Francisco based start-up UBER is alleviating the taxi drive industry. Founded in 2009, the taxi app is now available in fifty cities worldwide. Key value is the facilitating part of it: by use of the application, UBER seamlessly connects passengers to drivers by not only by making cities more accessible, but more importantly, by taking out all the extra links and replacing it with intuitive technology. The simplicity of the app makes the service very practical and useful. A smooth taxi ride is now literally just a few screentaps away. 1. UBER

SCIENCE OF THE TIMETREND RESEARCH & INNOVATION NETWORK 5 ICONIC EXAMPLES WWW.SCIENCEOFTHETIME.COM | WWW.SIGNS-SEEDS.COM JOIN OUR MAILINGLIST Just as Spotify has changed the way we listen to music, Netflix might just do the same for the television landscape. The pay-per-month-streaming-service offers unlimited access and HD views for a small amount of money. Not too long ago, this concept of letting customers pay for content was deemed the unthinkable. Now, initiatives with a progressive (on-demand) subscription model are becoming increasing popular and even revolutionizing segments such as the journalistic field. With the help of 15,000 newly found members, Dutch journalistic start-up The Correspondent (De Correspondent) reached its crowdfunding goals in just eight days. As for Netflix, the company has also teamed up with Khan Academy to bring free education to those in need and who cannot afford it. Now that is solving real problems. Yet, in this age of information overload, it is vital to emphasize that quality above all, remains key. 2. NETFLIX
  4. 4. SCIENCE OF THE TIMETREND RESEARCH & INNOVATION NETWORK 5 ICONIC EXAMPLES WWW.SCIENCEOFTHETIME.COM | WWW.SIGNS-SEEDS.COM JOIN OUR MAILINGLIST Designer Dave Hakkens had a vision. What if we could customize our phones to our own satisfaction and needs? Why not use Phonebloks that we can replace and recycle, instead of manufacturing traditional one- piece-phones? The video explaining Hakkens’ vision became an instant Internet hit. Ultimately, Motorola who had also been working on a similar idea, purchased his Phonebloks concept. The concept is great in many ways. Besides the fact that it is much more sustainable, it is also considered Cool because of the personalization aspect and the simplicity of it: a key value of Facilitate My Life. 3. PHONEBLOKS
  5. 5. SCIENCE OF THE TIMETREND RESEARCH & INNOVATION NETWORK 5 ICONIC EXAMPLES WWW.SCIENCEOFTHETIME.COM | WWW.SIGNS-SEEDS.COM JOIN OUR MAILINGLIST Thanks to British multinational Tesco, shopping for groceries has become so much more easy. Through the use of barcodes, the virtual supermarket – in this case in a South Korean subway station - has actually become a reality. As shoppers can see the items as if they were in a customary grocery store, the barcodes of the products can be scanned with your cell phone (after downloading the adjacent app, that is). This smartphone-friendly online shopping system isn’t just convenient for customers, it’s also a much more efficient method for the food commerce retailers. Tesco is currently working on a Minority Report style like means of advertising, so we can expect more similar novelties in the near future. 4. TESCO

SQUARE & ONLY Then there are two U.S based start-ups, Square and Only Coin, that are trying to revolutionize the way we pay. Square provides hard- and software that turns your iPhone or iPad into a payment system, making it possible to swipe your bankcard or credit card through your phone. Only Coin aims to replace all credit cards with just one smart card. As a nice feature that is connected to your phone, an alarm goes off when Only Coin is separated from your phone. Both Square and Coin will help you transform your smartphone (or any portable device for that matter) into the centrepiece of your life, catering your every need. COIN
