One of the apps that really stood out to me in 2011 was ConditionOne. While it’s focus and content are specific, it opened a door to the world of immersive video. The ability to physically interact with moving image through touch and gyro puts directorial power into the viewers hands, turning the experience into a truly active engagement.
This immersive entertainment experience is undeniably prevalent at this years Consumer Electronic Show (CES). Sharp’s 8K resolution TV paired with Nuance’s voice command software for TV will change our current way of consuming TV content. And with all of this evolution it is going to push content creators to think about how they can develop entertainment that utilizes all of this new tech.
And as I head off to Vegas tomorrow, I hope there is something that remotely resembles Microsoft’s Edison Lab technology.
