Founded by Steve Wozniak in 2016, Silicon Valley Comic Con was an instant classic, the Sweet Spot where technology and pop culture do a high-five. This year's event was attended by 1000s of attendees April 6-8 at the San Jose Convention Center, where the happiest surprise of all were preteen and teenage scientists exhibiting their inventions ranging the gamut of genetic engineering to wearable glasses that actually move objects viewed through the lens. The future is a hero.
