Research & Development

Posted by Ian Forrester, Lianne Kerlin on

BBC R&D and its partners have been pioneering technology which have changed our lives for decades; but what about our homes? We invite you to be part of the experiment and shape our research

The living room of the Future is short cinematic experience which asks just how much does your living room know about you, and the people in the room?

Personalisation of our entertainment and products is being held as key break through. But do we ever stop and think about how much technology knows about us and our loved ones? Do you wonder where personal information will be stored, used and how safe it is? When household objects will interact with each other, and you what does this mean for the future of media & entertainment?
We invite individuals, couples, families, and groups of friends to explore these questions at FACT Liverpool in a prototype Living Room of the Future. After the short immersive cinematic experience, you’ll have a chance to take part in a short interview to share your thoughts.

It is suitable for all ages, but under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
The project is the first public prototype of the collaboration with FACT, The British Council, University of Nottingham, Lancaster University, and University of York. In addition to support from the British Council, this project is being delivered using funds from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
