From Augmented Makeup Mirrors to Interactive Street Theatrics

From augmented reality makeup mirrors to sound systems that dazzle with LED light displays, the top April 2015 multimedia ideas amplify entertainment.

Dramatically enhancing one element of a product is described as acceleration in chief Trend Hunter Jeremy Gutsche's new book, Better and Faster. A focus on enhanced entertainment is exemplified with a product like the AnOther Digital Limited Edition cover that features a video of Rihanna rather than a still image.

Ideas like these that made waves at SXSW 2015 include live broadcasting apps like Meerkat and Stre.am. Not too long after, Periscope was launched as an app that lets users share moments in real-time with followers through video. Now more than ever, it's apparent that consumers are looking for more engagement than they can get from a static image.
