Carnegie Mellon Innovation Forum on Services and Technologies for Interactive Media (NET-STIM)

February 28th, 2010 by NearInteraction

Held at Pavilhão do Conhecimento in Lisbon, the foremost goal of the forum was to gather like minded expertise of Portuguese research centers, private companies and government agencies working in key interactive technologies and services of digital media. Diogo Terroso was invited to represent NearInteraction and partake in the opening roundtable discussion on Technologies for Interactive Media, exploring how interactive media services require an interdisciplinary approach, where the disciplines of design, communication, psychology, anthropology and sociology need to combine in an effective and innovative way in order to create new products and services, for example, media distribution services (the iPod and iTunes or eBooks and Kindle), social networks (Facebook and Twitter), or co-creation services (like YouTube and Blogging).

September saw NearInteraction as the TEDxEdges Chromium Sponsor proudly contributing to the conference that took place in Lisbon.

Throughout the duration of the event, TEDxEdges featured an innovative multi-touch application developed by NearInteraction, in collaboration with Pacifica and The Others, which allowed the participants real-time navigation of all the comments shared through the Twitter platform. The multi-touch table, presented by NearInteraction at TEDxEdges, is an unique hardware that allows multi-user interaction through touch, combined with graphics and visual information displayed directly on the surface.
