I was lucky enough to secure a place to go to see the D&AD “Digital Revolution” talk in Manchester by an expert panel. It was such a good opportunity to learn and see how technology is changing our lives form their prespective.
Heres a quick summary of what the judges were talking about:
"Google Glasses- we’ll be surounded by Cyborgs"
Disney’s gadget that allows you to re-create touch behind objects like glass
"Pigeons that shit soap- who’s actually in charge of doing this shit"
"there are people changing the world out there and we should be with them"
"i’m called Craig and i’m just a fucking designer"
"We are shit at predicting the future as well"
"where is my flat on the moon"
"Change is a good thing- i’, not here to piss all over digital because I can’t handle it"
"Why do we fucking design digital cameras like that. We used to use film. We don’t any more"
"A genius is a person who sees potential in other peoples ideas"
