When members of the global meetings and events industry gather for EIBTM 2013 in Barcelona next week, they’ll be able to check out some of today’s top technologies.
Eight innovations will be available for a test drive in the new interactive — and aptly named —Innovation Zone. Even if you’re not spending Nov. 19-21 in Spain, you might want to see what made the cut:
- Acciona Producciones y Diseño’s video mapping — A new audiovisual concept for projecting video and graphic images onto real surfaces, transforming a passive structure like the front of a building into an optical illusion.
- Beabloo‘s facial recognition software —Detects facial interaction data that contributes to ROI at exhibitions, including the demographics of visitors that walk by, their age and gender, how long they stayed at your stand and their repetition rate.
- Crowd Reactive‘s live Instagrams — Uses social media content from attendees to create live slide shows on-site that can be augmented by live printing and photo props.
- COVR’s cmWalkTrue — Uses real-life images to create virtual exhibitions, allowing anyone to visit any time, even when the physical doors are closed.
- Embraceled Interactives — Creates RF bracelets that light up in different colors, letting participants discover others with similar interests, vote, receive information and interact online.
- Eventisimo’s Sunflower Graphic — Unifies the sound and digital worlds, mixing software-generated content with live surroundings and letting the user interact with the virtual world by moving his or her body.
- Kisikura — Sharing an oxygen chair that lets attendees rest, relax and revitalize.
- Topi — A native app that runs on iPhone, iPad, Android and Mobile Windows platforms and helps attendees find people with common interests through information shared on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Foursquare and Meetup.
