All visions of the future contain images of pervasive screens throughout the lives of users: Days Made of Glass, Minority Report, Blade Runner, even Apple’s Knowledge Navigator of 1987. Research centers are creating technologies for autoscopic 3D, flexible displays, augmented reality, responsive media, immersive googles and domes, inexpensive pervasive displays, and all running at 8K resolution or higher.
How do we separate the hype from the reality of these visions? Which of these innovations will users reject, like 3D TV, which will take off, and how can we decide which innovations to design for? Technology advocates often compare media technology innovations to the change from black-and-white to color TV, but when is that characterization fair and when is it overstatement? In this presentation, I’ll present a case study in the field of responsive media, called Responsive Mirror, and apply lessons learned from that to anticipate the fates of today’s hot topics in visions of tomorrow’s ubiquitous media.
Innovators of new products and services, particularly using new media technologies such as 3D, Augmented Reality, Responsive Media, and more.
