Are people tools in the hands meeting architects, to influence participants? It sounds a bit weird but on the other side, it is about time we see professionals (and volunteers or staff) of all sorts as a category of tools in designing better meetings. Our participants are people and consciously deploying ‘non participant’ people to assist, facilitate, inspire, motivate and even drive meeting objectives is probably the most logic and maybe even the most effective thing we can do.
It’s a technological world
The role of technology in the meetings business has evolved hugely in the past ten years and shows no sign of let up. Where once the Telex was cutting edge, organisers must now manage in an age of hybrid events, multi-screening and streamed live content. Technology is making today’s events more engaging than ever.
A low cost system developed by Nanyang Technological University (NTU), based on the principles of vibration and imaging that is able to track the movements of multiple fingers and of objects, can do just that.
Retrofitting the system onto existing flat-panel TVs will transform it into new, touch sensitive display screens, at only a fraction of the cost of new touch-sensitive display screens, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars.
