What is creative tech?In its simplest form, creative tech is the intersection of creativity and technology. Through the interplay of cross-cutting ideas in art, fashion, screen, advertising, product design, digital media, multimedia, games, computing, robotics, engineering and electronics, creative tech is connecting the physical and digital worlds in completely new ways.
Areas where creative entrepreneurs are at the forefront of tech adoption include:
- Wearable technology
- Digital media
- Music tech
- Film tech
- Virtual and augmented reality
- Internet of things
- Fashion tech
- Virtual marketplaces
- 3D printing
- Multi-sensory experiences
These organisations operate on scalable models that not only improve accessibility to their products and services, but also deliver integrated user experiences...And this is just the beginning.
