Transformative Technology Exhibition at SAND14

Join us for the first Transformative Technology exhibition at SAND 2014. The SAND conference is a hub of influence and community at the intersection of science and consciousness. As part of that tradition, SAND will be exhibiting products and art at the cutting edge of the rapidly expanding Transformative Technology space, focused at the intersection of technology, consciousness, and human well-being.

Transformative Technology
There is a growing recognition of technology’s role in increasing human well-being, decreasing stress/anxiety, and ultimately getting at the fundamental causes of human suffering. This is supported by an increasing understanding – through psychology, neuroscience, meditation research, etc. – of the mechanisms underlying experiences such as peace, compassion, unconditional love, and the fundamental sense of who and what we are.
These Transformative Technologies, which can be seen as an extension, or evolution of traditional tools, have been explored and developed for decades, but recently there appears to be an increase in interest and activity. Examples of this technology are emerging in academia, consumer wearables, gaming, mobile devices, and beyond. The frameworks within which these tools are developed range from Eastern traditions (meditation, yoga, enlightenment, etc) to western psychology, physics, flow states, Transhumanism, Essential Self Technologies… and too many more to list.

The precise boundaries of the space are still forming as people, projects and research begin to emerge and define the territory. Generally speaking, Transformative Technologies are actual hardware and/or software devices (i.e. they run on electricity), developed based on credible science/research, that can produce a reliable and positive change in human experience. These technologies might be consumer devices, medical devices, interactive exhibits or art pieces.
