One of the highlights of the exhibition is an interactive light sculpture made out of lasers by Marshmallow. It is an example of the future direction for digital design as an immersive experience, which is quite difficult to describe – it has to be experienced firsthand to get the idea.

The next phase of digital design is about blurring boundaries between the real and the virtual. There are endless possibilities for brands to use virtual reality, sensor and wearable technology to create immersive and  emotional experiences to consumers.
