AT&T Innovation Showcase intros several "art of the possible" projects from AT&T Labs
In New York City last week, we managed to attend AT&T Innovation Showcase, where we were able to get a sneak peek at several new “art of the possible” projects being actively pursued in the various AT&T foundries around the world. Like we said, we sometimes take for granted why and how those carrier apps are on our smartphones, but in talking to the folks demoing the various projects, it’s quite inviting to know that AT&T has a deep caring for enriching our lives through the works of its various mobile projects.
Now, some of the stuff we checked out during the AT&T Showcase are more interesting than others, but it’ll be interesting to see how they pan out. Not every single one of these project are actually going to develop into real services aimed specifically for consumers, but for some of them, they’re targeting enterprise and governmental agencies. Check out what each of them has to offer and tell us which ones you believe to be meaningful.

Your teen-angsty/rebellion, anti-anythingpowerful is really old.
Have you ever thought that the executives are a minority of the positions in any given company and is largely hard working employees, managers, and researchers? The latter of which loving what they do, and most likely truly working hard to develop something for the rest of the world?
Yeah sometimes the ones who makes the call final might not be the one with the most interest in giving to the people rather than just the investors, but thats how you keep a company growing. It creates jobs, and sometimes more opportunities for people.
AT&T is not a perfect company and I can attest to that myself through my own experiences, but is hardly the worst. I can also surely respect anyone working in an R&D division for any big company. They really are geniuses working on raising the bar for the good of everyone. How it's ultimately used, when, and for how much isn't always in their control... unfortunately.
