The year is 2132. The smartphone is extinct and in its place are wearables. The average person works for large megacorporations that boast a company culture of exponentially increasing speeds of productivity.
As a result, the average person has no time to ingest the world around them and are constantly looking for ways to streamline, offload, delegate, optimize and outsource the tedium of everyday life. IONIZE™ is a company that is releasing a product to answer this demand.
