Programmable Realities

Harness the potential of real-time phygital fluidity

Book now


The rise of reactive new materials and technologies means that future physical consumer touchpoints will no longer be set in stone… or any other solid matter.

More than half of the world’s population is now online and access to cheap, hi-res sensors is growing rapidly. This digital layer is becoming so seamlessly integrated into our lives that soon everything in our physical world will have a digital twin.

Our new in-house presentation explores the reactive new materials and technologies that are allowing real objects to replicate the ever-changing nature of the digital sphere.

In this presentation we examine:

: Hindsight

As our experiences of the digital and physical worlds become inextricably linked, we delve into a new language that will convey this era of fluid interaction and radically change our relationship to the products we consume – and to each other.

: Insight

We present the brands across sectors such as beauty, fashion, entertainment and retail that are demonstrating the value of fluid consumer touchpoints to evolve and grow alongside this new breed of data-driven consumer.

: Foresight

In the future, brands will become integrated into every element of consumer life, and consumers – facilitated by brands – will create their own versions of reality. We investigate the smart material innovations and environments that can be transformed at the swipe of a finger, from the interior of autonomous vehicles to the next generation of hotel rooms.
