  5. 5. Plutopia 2011: The Future of Play Gathering momentum from Plutopia 2010: The Science of Music, the official SXSW evening event held last March at Aus�n’s Mexican- American Cultural Center,Plutopia’s 5th annual extravaganza, The Future of Play, promises to deliver a whole new set of experien�al adventures. The Future of Play will explore the concept of play as transforma�ve through four key aspects: Social Play (including community and communica�on); Ac�on Play (sports, gaming, etc.); Mental and Emo�onal Play (including explora�on, adventure and imagina�on); and Sound Play. To be held in Aus�n on March 14th, 2011 the event will be though�ully posi�oned as a well-cra�ed link between SXSW Interac�ve, Film and Music. Furthering our mission to create unique “sense events,” this year’s extravaganza will include interac�ve installa�ons, per- formances by world-renowned musicians / ar�sts, talks, art exhibits, compelling projec�ons, DJs, demonstra�ons, performance art, robots, projec�ons, gaming fun, locally produced ar�sanal food and beverages, and much more. The entertainment, performances, talks and installa�ons will include a wide range of emerging technologies, social and behavioral change and affec�ve processes. These will cover everything from sensory engagement, to smart materials and architectures, robo�cs and augmented reality to interac�ve, socially and loca�on-aware installa�ons, and gaming and stage performances. Plutopia 2011 will be a rich manifesta�on of convergence - of science and technology with art and entertainment.
