40 Sensational Streaming Innovations

From Royal Weddings to Camera Head Implants

— November 2, 2011 — Pop Culture
These streaming innovations will have one thinking about how you consume your digital content. Whether it is presidential meetings that are broadcast live online or art projects where a camera is placed inside the artist's head, with video streaming, everything is possible.

The streaming innovations that I find particularly compelling are the ones that remove a barrier. For example, FashionForward lets those interested in the fashion world have the opportunity to watch a live streaming feed of exclusive events, all from the comfort of their home.

Implications - Many consumers are looking for products that are accessible, and make their busy lives easier. Companies should consider making designs that are easy to use, and allow customers to relax.
