How was the workThe most challenging phases were the categorization and evaluation: to know precisely which trendswere more relevant and do the prioritization. The topic is very interesting and everything looksinnovative and we were surprised how technology has been improving in such a short time.Technology can contribute even more for Media & Entertainment segments, it is easy fall in love andbe very intuitive and predictive.Almost all the information was gathered from the Internet, previous experiences, workshops andbooks. All content was collected individually and combined in a Prezi file. From there we’ve got a .pdf,which was printed, helping us to better visualized the content. Other method used was Internetqualitative questionnaire. We spread the survey around our friends and we got only 10 answers, thefew results were maybe because the amount of questions, mostly of all open to interpretation.However the results were fantastic. The trends titles were decided by the group during the second workshop. We looked for the mostreasonable names for the grouped data. It was clear that many trends referred to the same technologybut named in different way, i.e. wearables and tech accessories. Futures Thinking & Foresight Methodologies 01032
