Emotional Technologies
Future technologies are easy to imagine when we think about VR, haptics, or 3D printing. But how do we imagine a future where future technologies are held responsible for their humane impact and emotional significance. Technologies that will make a difference to support, connect, or shape us as better human beings in the future. A true Future Technology will not distract us, but make us better people.

Alex will speak about Cove, an app by Humane Engineering for creating music to capture your mood and express how you feel. As well as other personal works which aim to challenge what the term “future technologies” means.

Jude Munkudane will speak in detail about RootIO project, explaining his concept and context, in addition to addressing the social characteristics of the project and the communities involved.
