Storytelling Engines for Smart Environments

Monday, March 16
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 12AB
Austin Convention Center

The Information Age moved us into a Connected Economy but didn’t fully restored the relational Poetry it had conceiled. The Sensor Age is finally here. We can now fully awake the Poetic Potential of the Internet of things. The physical world is the new platform (again).

Removing the friction between the various touchpoints of a typical daily human experience to create Meaningful Immersive Experience that doesn't isolate the user has proven to be a very challenging task.

The panel will be organized to navigate the limitless possibilities of the various services, products tools and mindsets that allows any Urban Planners, any changemaker, any Retail Strategist, any Creative Director, any Storyteller, any Poet to create Experiences that seamlessly incorporate Human Behaviors, the ever-growing types of wearables & connected objects, mobile devices & their applications, environmental media systems (sounds, video, special effects) and a vast array of Sensors and Sensors Networks.
