lsb#14: the next big thing (2013)

lunaSteamBulletin#14: the next big thing
Notes from the IFA Global Press Conference 2013 at Sardinia

This year I was invited to the Global Press Conference of the German fair IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung), which provided insights into the international Consumer Electronics and Home Appliances industries and the latest news about IFA 2013 in Berlin (Sept. 6-11, 2013). Beside some ambient views of the event, the video is focused on a panel discussion about the long-awaited Killer Device on the consumer market. "Some think it’s already here", the IFA press-information says. "Perhaps the Smartphone and all that it can do. Some believe that it has yet to be invented or even thought about. Many think it may be just around the corner. But others feel that everything available in our lifetime is already here and manufacturers will simply build-in more features to devices we already have."

the next big thing includes footage from the panel discussion "What is the next thing in consumer tech?" (closing session, 2013/04/19), the "Dolce Vita" evening at Pula (2013/04/19) and some shots before the Gala Dinner at the harbour of Cagliari (2013/04/20). Location: Forte Village, Santa Margherita di Pula, Sardinia, Italy.

Speakers:
Waichi Sekiguchi, Editorial Writer, Nikkei (Japan)
Archibald Horlitz, CEO, GRAVIS AG (Germany)
Lawrence Magid, Commentator, CBS News & CNET (USA)
