This month we chatted to Alexandra from MultiTaction, world-leading developers of interactive display systems, on our theme of Interactivity. Hailing all the way from Illinois, U.S., here’s what Alex had to say.
What does interactivity mean to you?
Interactivity to me, is the ability to engage and communicate with others with a purpose.H
How has interactivity changed you?
Interactivity has changed me by opening up new ways of communication through technology. It is a totally different world with more possibilities now than there ever was.
What do you think is one of the biggest misconceptions about interactive development?
The biggest misconceptions about interactive development is the difficulty with working in other ways in an organisation. The intimidation of working in a different way than the norm and trying to feel confident in working in this new state. The hurdle for some may be daunting, but once practiced and used regularly then it becomes easier, almost second nature.
Where do you think interactivity will be in five years?
In five years, I think interactivity will be in a more advanced state where the norm would be communicating through touch technology, video chat and messaging all in real-time. There would be no latency in communicating with any parts of an organization or individual. Everyone would be more accessible and reachable at any moment’s notice. It would be considered the future workplace where interactivity is instant.
Seen any cool interactive applications lately that you can share with us?
One recent installation was with our touch displays over three walls and a table, to establish meetings and brainstorming sessions.
Thanks for chatting with us, Alex! We’re proud to partner with MultiTaction and look forward to many more collaborations in 2019.
