How can screens in the future help me connect with others in a meaningful way?
We have a series of three contests coming for Samsung about how we will use screens in the future. All contests will be launched in November and last two weeks. Each of the contest is on a different consumer need and we ask you to envision how we use existing or new/emerging technologies to make screens and the experience they deliver useful to address the need. We hope you like them!
With globalization, it is very common for young people to leave the nest. International and European scale programs make studying abroad for young people easier than before. More young people also stay in their parents’ house with considerations of income, job market, and housing price. Parents and friends feel the need to connect with these young people and therefore technology is a great ally for this.
The number of seniors living alone also grows. While not always physically far from their family, they are indeed living alone most of the time and thus in need to stay connected with their loved ones and other people they can identify with.
For this contest, we’d like to make you think about the different ways people are connecting . As people living far away from their relatives/friends, or due to a more independent lifestyle, being alone becomes a commonplace. Show how the experience of connecting to others in a more meaningful way can be enhanced through screens.
