It’s not science fiction: human-computer interaction in 2016

A recording from a talk I gave with Mike T at Dev Week 2016, rather enjoyed this one.


As technologists we are pretty bad at coming up with new ideas. Instead we often look to literature and films for inspiration and the computer industry has spent decades trying to bring some of these things to life.

In this interactive session, Andrew and Mike will break down some seemingly impossible scenarios from popular films and show how science fiction has become science fact, and that you can easily build aspects these interactions into your products today using cheap available hardware.

Expect code demos and audience interaction. Bring your own jetpack. Hover board not included.
