The future of video and man-machine interfaces

The Institute for the Future has shared its Future of Video project using the presentation platform Prezi. This is a great way of giving access to the rich visual frameworks that are the trademark of IFTF – it’s well worth a browse just to see part of what Prezi can do.

The presentation wraps up with some nice videos from Microsoft and Sixth Sense showing visions and demonstrations of the role of video in how we interface with the external world and information. Which illustrates how man-machine interfaces – one of the primary mechanisms for the birth of the living networks – are in fact largely driven by video.

The trends that are highlighted in the presentation are:

- From scarcity to abundance of digital video

- From passive to hyperlinked, interactive video

- From keypad to gestural and tangible interaction

- From limited to ubiquitous video interactions

- From camera-captured to synthetic CG video

- From 2D to immersive HD, 4KHD, and 3D video
