The television has been around for almost a century, but major innovations in the TV space have only come about in the last couple of decades. With millions of users streaming thousands of programs daily, interacting with the TV has become a normal part of our everyday lives. But, do we ever stop and think about the design behind these experiences? What considerations do designers take into account when creating a 10-foot experience?

What technologies are being used in televisions today, and what will TV experiences look like in the future? In her talk, Kristen will address these questions and more. Please join us.
