Digital Futures* is a program of free tech play days, interactive exhibition, and game lab, discussions, and workshops, happening at State Library of Queensland up until Nov 5.
Elements of the digital landscape, in which we now learn, work and play, including adaptive technologies, education, robotics, new business models, social media, mobile technology, and virtual worlds are showcased, tested, discussed through the Digital Futures year long program.
Digital Futures invites Queenslanders to immerse themselves in futurism, digital participation and our digital place. Through Digital Futures and associated programming, SLQ will explore how technological advances are changing how we learn and access information, our economy, our environment, our leisure activities, the future of employment and the workforce, and how these changes are affecting us on a fundamental, human level.
The centre of the Digital Futures program is the interactive and intriguing Digital Futures Lab, housed in the SLQ Gallery. Visitors can discover future fashion and wearable technology, learn how to pilot a drone simulator, and explore what the future might hold. Those who come to the Lab will receive information, hands-on tech experiences and be presented with provocative questions to prompt inquisitive thinking and perhaps spark the imagination.
