Fusing Emerging Technology and Art

When Pegasus PR approached me to do a presentation for their Inspiring Healthy Futures event, I thought that it would be great a opportunity to talk about 3D body scanning and 360 time freeze photography and how we have been fusing this emerging technology with art to grab people’s attention. The only tricky bit was the actual theme of the event ‘inspiring healthy futures’, because what we had been creating was more to do with fun and novel event experiences rather than inspiring people to live healthy. Luckily, there are a number of applications for this technology within the health and fitness industry as well as other sectors.

The video shows the entire 18 minutes presentation, and below are just a few snippets of information taken from it.

Emerging Technology Trends in 2016

During your crystal ball gazing exercises you may or may not have come across the Gartner’s Hype Cycle of Emerging Technologies.

How to engage the unengaged and delight the disillusioned

How do we create innovative experiences and digital media campaigns that engage the unengaged by fusing emerging technology and art, 3D body scanning, 3D printing, or projection mapping? You name it and we might have an idea or two that are waiting for a nudge from you to be turned into reality.

This prezi below will give you a brief overview of how we cut through the digital noise.

Wearable Technology meets Augmented Reality

There is a lot of hype around emerging tech such as wearable technology and augmented reality. Some industry fans go as far as saying that this is THE year of wearable technology.

According to Gordon Padkin from Freescale, one of the panellists at the Wearable Technology Show (10th-11th March), “barriers to entry from a software and electronics perspective are very low, so it’s a good time to join the industry.” He added that “50% of wearable technology ideas will come from start ups”.
