    Silicon Valley is a young, vibrant place that values youth as a commodity above all else, so what can it do for older people? Can technology offer something for the folks that aren't scooting around on self-balancing skateboards? That's the question Steve Goldbloom and his crew want to ask with this week's episode of mockumentary On the Brink of Greatness. He's taken representatives from five local startups to the Piedmont Gardens retirement community to face the wrath of a shark tank.

    Engadget is the definitive guide to this connected life. Technology isn't all about bits and processors. It's the car with no driver, human organs printed in a lab and leisurely flights into space. It's the future and we're here to tell you all about it. Since 2004, Engadget has exhaustively covered cutting edge devices and the technology that powers them. As we enter our second decade, we're looking beyond the gadgets themselves to explore how they impact our lives.
