Technically speaking, I have been interested in 3D graphics and visualizations, virtual and augmented reality, touch interactions, social media and collaboration and new modes of interaction. I am currently the TechLabs lead for our work in the area of Integrated Digital Experiences (IDE). IDE is a set of projects that address the digitization and webification of many different B2C channels, including PC-based interactions, mobile, television and in-store experiences with interactive walls and tables. Our goal is to develop technology assets that help our clients engage with their customers on each channel, and to engage with them across channels in a consistent and ongoing “conversation.”
