September is here! The summer temps will soon give way to falling leaves and twilight fires. I can smell the pumpkin-flavored lattes already. Before you know it, the holidays will be here and you’ll be looking for that perfect gift for your favorite tech-geek. That’s one reason we have done some digging to discover what the newest technology trends are this year. It’s also interesting to see how the digital age continues to boggle the imagination.

Now, virtual reality isn’t exactly cutting-edge. We’ve been playing around with it since the ‘80s. But it appears the technology has finally caught up with the idea and our friends at Carolina CompuTech explain how it might just become a part of our daily lives. We’ll also talk about up-and-coming gadgets – things like Immersit, which can motorize your couch, and Modobag, a rideable suitcase. Finally, our friends at Duke University at the NCRC are studying ways people can maintain their physical dexterity as they age. They’re also hosting the Duke Dash 5K & Healthfest this month.

These and many other nuggets of local information are jam-packed inside this edition. And, speaking of technology, did you know you can read Cabarrus Magazine, as well as lots of other articles not in the print edition, online at It’s true! Check it out!
