Frontiers of Interaction 2013
Thursday, 24 October 2013 at 09:00 - Friday, 25 October 2013 at 19:00 (CEST)
Once again Frontiers of Interaction is covering emerging cutting-edge technologies that are disrupting the world as we know it, along with future trends that will shape it.
The dramatic times we are facing are coming along with exponentially accelerating technologies with huge impact. Three pillars of current society must reinvent themselves, let’s see how automotive, media and mobile industries will change in the close future.
Cars have designed our future throughout the industrial era. So much that in the future since seen, was that of flying cars. Today we know that flying cars have not arrived and-after all-we do not need. The future we are experiencing is gone elsewhere. And cars have responded accordingly.
Mobile phones have redesigned our habits. Within a decade we have been announced, made accessible everywhere, then even geolocated. A chunk of plastic we carried out for work has become an object before emotional and so personal to integrate with our memory, making us prototypes of cyborg. In this field, the technology has always been a prerequisite but it was designed to separate the winners from extinct. And the process of natural selection is still largely in place.
As television is becoming a mosaic of tiles information always on, today we celebrate the death of the remote control, an icon of our history. Tablets and smartphones have been inserted between the TV and sofa, bringing transactions and insights on demand just a click away, causing seismic shifts: consumer viewing habits are now true full social experiences.
