Next TV

"Is your tv this personalized and dynamic?"

We no longer watch TV without other devices present. We email, browse and chat all while our favorite programs are playing. The ways in which we experience broadcast media has changed radically and as a result new digital services could enhance this new experience.

This project explores the connected, social future of television, in which any television can access an infinite amount of online content. Combing ethnographies of socially-networked viewers and content with interaction design, the project outlines an innovative, multi-platform TV interface. Looking beyond search and static menus, we have designed an innovative interface that compiles recommendations into a dynamic, personalized palimpsest overlaid with social and critical annotations.

The resulting experience is exploratory and highly social, allowing the content to seduce the viewer and become the center of social interactions.
