This is a video prototype completed as part of a research project conducted by the MIT Mobile Experience Lab in 2010 exploring the connected, social future of television. Combing ethnographies of socially-networked viewers and content with interaction design, the project outlined an innovative, multi-platform TV interface. Looking beyond search and static menus, the team designed an innovative interface that compiles recommendations into a dynamic, personalized palimpsest overlaid with social and critical annotations. The resulting experience is exploratory and highly social, allowing the content to seduce the viewer and become the center of social interactions.
