I’m adding two more keynotes on this Friday morning.
First up, is Ariel Garten, CEO of Interaxon, a “thought-controlled computing” company. Yes, you read that correctly. If you haven’t yet begun to notice a theme with Blur speakers, it’s this: it’s all out of this world, borderline-science fiction stuff. Ariel will be joining us to explore the already existent future where you control computers with your thoughts.
Second, I’ve confirmed John Fillwalk, Director of the Institute for Digital Intermedia Arts, to come and speak about an initiative that he’s and his team are building for public release this coming fall. The project is a complete design of a new museum – it focuses on 3D space, interactive virtual environments that are driven by art, spatial computing, and the use of things like Kinect.
As we continue to roll out keynotes, we’ll be doing a major update to the Blur agenda shortly. Stay tuned.
