Gogglebox of the Future

The Living Room of the Future demonstrator was created to explore immersive media experiences using technologies including Object-Based Media, Perceptive Media, and Databox.

Gogglebox of the Future moves the lens from the technology and focuses it back on to the viewers. In these two films we see how participants must negotiate with the Living Room of the Future in order to watch a romantic drama which employs technology to deliver immersive and adaptive experiences that protect viewers’ privacy.

The film above is part 1 of the Gogglebox of the Future project showing the consent process. In part 2 we see viewers watching the programme and reflecting on the whole process.

We would like to extend thanks to AHRC (via the Objects of Immersion grant) and EPSRC (via the Cyber Security for the Internet of Things grant) for supporting this research.
