Ryan Fowler wishes he had a wall-sized 40-foot multi-user touchscreen in his living room like the one at the Museum of Art in Cleveland. Fowler can be found pursuing his passions in music, advertising, social media and ice hockey during his downtime. There's little he loves more than a bright sunny day at the beach.
What's your favorite trend and why?
My favorite trend is the 40-foot touchscreen at the Cleveland Museum of Art. I really enjoy this because they created a multi-user touchscreen platform where people can go in and experience various types of history and art on a giant screen. It's a unique way to explore art that hasn't really been done before in a museum.
