Living to 120 and working to 90 / Channel 10’s The Project

Date posted: October 6, 2017

The crew from Channel 10's The Project reached out this evening, ahead of a keynote I'm delivering in Adelaide on the weekend on Living to 120 and working into our 90's and asked if I could take them on a tour of tomorrow in search of what a world where we all have the potential to live to beyond 100 might look like. Along the way, we explored a tomorrow in which we routinely live to 100 and beyond; asked what jobs if any we might be doing (including my belief that there will be no jobs, as we know them); how we could possibly work until we're 90; how we might be liv

Future Home: How We’ll be Living in 10 Years’ Time / houzz

Date posted: September 26, 2017

[houzz=https://www.houzz.com.au/ideabooks/89196522/list/future-home-how-well-be-living-in-10-years-time w=300] With property prices on the rise, more of us working from home, and technology permeating practically every corner of our lives, it’s a question on many people’s lips. We’ve asked futurist Morris Miselowski to tell us his predictions about where and how we’ll be living a decade from now. How will we be living? Attitudes towards property ownership are changing. For baby boomers (those born between 1954 and 1965) owning a property was evidence of a successful life. Their children aren’t interested in that. For today’s twenty-somethings, success is judged by how many likes you have on your social media accounts – success is abo

Get connected: understanding the Internet of Things / Officeworks Workstyle

Date posted: June 16, 2016

internet of things image1You might have heard about how one day your home appliances will work autonomously, communicate with each other and predict your needs. But exactly how far from actuality is this level of technology? Futurist Morris Miselowski believes smart technologies, commonly referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT), will have “mainstream acceptance” and ubiquity within the next decade. “We’ve had [IoT technology] in science fiction for 100 years. It’s always been implied that at some point technology will be able to understand itself and will be able to do things for us without us having to ask.” Morris has 34 years’ experience consulting to companies look

Living High / Chapel Street Precinct

chapel_street_2reprinted from a feature article written by Sarah Wilcox for Chapel Street Precinct   Urban sprawl is so five minutes ago. The Australian dream of a house on a quarter acre block is dead. Skyscrapers are moving to the suburbs. This progress is a double-edged sword that leaves us wondering: how might our future selves live?

Back to the Future

To figure out where Melburnians might be headed, it helps to look at from where we have come. It’s the job of futurist Morris Miselowski to predict (with research and evidence rather than some kin

Look it’s a bird, it’s a plane, no it’s a #drone – 4BC, ABC Wide Bay, ABC Far North, Southern Cross Austereo WA

40 uses for dronesThe number of drone related media releases, stories, contacts and media requests I have had over the past few weeks has gone into overdrive. Australia Post's announcement that they would trial drone deliveries in remote areas brought the story back to Australia and although this is a great thing for them to trial and definitely part of a future landscape for them, I am skeptical if there is real intent or just hype behind this announcement. On a side bar the more interesting things in Australia Posts' announcement is their trial of 3D printers in their retail

FC-WashingtonExteriorViewH01-HR06-FINAL (2)Farewell to the great Australian dream of the quarter acre block, we will miss you - you served us well, sheltered us wonderfully, helped bring our family and loved one together and sent a message to the world that we had succeeded in life by attaining you, but this is where we must part company. In my regular on air catch up with 4BC's Clare Blake we explored Australia's future housing landscape and how over the next few decades it will look very different from the recent pas
