Innovation Hub of 11/17/2012: Future of Food. Future of Clothing.

November 17, 2012

Here's the lineup for this week.

The Future of Food

What's the next frontier in food product development? Organic? Gluten-free?

Some argue we're looking at a revolution in the food industry -- a new consumer awakening that will lead to a radical re-evaluation of what we put into our bodies.

We talk to entrepreneurs and food experts about the trends they're seeing -- and, of course, whether price will be the ultimate deciding factor in what we eat.


The Future of Clothing

Remember the one-outfit-fits-all approach of Star Trek?

Well, we may be entering a time when "smart" clothes are able to adapt to different temperatures and moisture levels. A time when robots can make seamless clothes customized to our bodies.

Today, we talk to four people on the cutting edge of clothing design -- people who understand the next frontier of sportswear and fashion.
