The Future Xperience Lab

As part of the celebration of The Futures Lab’s 20th anniversary last year, we decided to revamp our “living the future” events division to include new approaches to fully immersive/interactive experiences.  In doing so, we changed our name from FEEL (Future Events and Entertainment Lab) to the Future Xperience Lab (www.futureXperiencelab.com).  This has meant that our focus is firmly on connecting our foresight expertise with our “living the future” events experience, specifically the creation, theming, experiential design and curation aspects, rather than full production.

Accordingly, we have expanded both our foresight capabilities as well as our experiential design and technology team. This was no more evident than the work we did for AEM over the past couple of years in undertaking a robust study for the Future of the Construction industry, which became the blueprint for the Future Tech Experience at CONEXPO CON-AGG in Vegas in March 2017.Our experiential design and technology team also designed and delivered interactive experiences for that event.

Our goal through our foresight programs and “living the future” events is to bring the future to life and to demonstrate the positive endeavors, inventions and creativity that are helping build a future for the benefit of mankind. Through direct exposure and encounter with the emerging future, participants avail their fears and open up their dreams.

Convergence vs. Collision: The Future of Personalized Experiential Media

 

Convergence vs. Collision: The Future of Personalized Experiential Media

Derek Woodgate

 

This is an overviewConvergence vs. Collision of a recent presentation by our President, Derek Woodgate.

In an increasingly post‐broadcast world, we are constantly celebrating the values of digital convergence. The multiplicity of interconnected technologies and devices, peer-aggregated media, open source, and collaborative design and development have created integrated communication, media, and entertainment opportunities, augmented by the greater unification of compatible standards.

 

This presentation considers two critical, distinctive strategic possibilities for the future of personalized experiential media. The first—promoting the continuation and expansion of interconnectivity and extension of the “anything, anytime, anyplace, anyhow” trend—we have been experiencing over the past decade. The second strategy amplifies the complexity and hazards of convergence, when too much simply leads to a collision of technologies, cost efficiencies, user ineffectiveness, and more.

 

The presentation looks at the whole field of potential future experiential media with the human at the center. It discusses the role of emotive feedback, affective systems, and invisible, intuitive interfaces and their impact on new distribution methods, new revenue strategies, and changing modes of audience engagement. It also demonstrates ways in which emphasis on the human will give more power to the user in creating more personalized multisensory delivery mechanisms, as well as developments in fully immersive, self‐generating, and responsive environments, metaverses, telepresence, and augmentation through AR, AI, and sensor networks.

 

Finally, we shall see how future experiential media will influence consumer behavior and societal change over the next decade.

 

The presentation covers a multitude of emerging technologies and behaviors that extend the potential of sensory enhancement and immersive environments, such as: adaptive projection maps, holographic overlays, hybrid and imaginary spaces, simulated worlds, and programmed atmospheres, as well as the seamless fusion between entertainment and communication and the seamless movement between real and virtual. The material demonstrates how such events are designed to be adaptive to personal aesthetics, imagination, moods, and emotions in order to facilitate new approaches to exploration, innovation, and learning.
