‘Ubiquitous Interaction – A world of displays’

On October 2, 2013 Merck KGaA, Darmstadt Germany held its “Displaying Futures”’ Symposium in Seoul, Korea. More than 50 top decision-makers from the Korean electronics and consumer electronics industries accepted the invitation to the Korea Furniture Museum and expressed their enthusiasm about the initiative of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany. The objective was to rethink the interaction between people and displays by bringing together the best thinkers of our time to discuss the topic: ‘Ubiquitous Interaction – A world of displays‘.

Under the auspices of the German Embassy in Korea, the global leader in the liquid crystals market is pursuing this initiative to offer insights into cultural perspectives, highlight market developments, sensitize society to significant changes in lifestyles and formulate technological challenges with different stakeholders such as artists, scientists, industrial designers, architects or interaction specialists. ‘Ubiquitous interaction’ means the dissolution of borders between man and machine through integrated technologies.
