I presented at the Assembly 2013 computer festival a seminar session called Using Emerging Hardware & Software for Inspiration.
In the presentation I explained an idea that from emerging stuff you should find novelty from an interesting data transformation and some leverage from use of existing standards. I also touched some motivational aspects to use emerging hardware and software and tips for approaching. Several small case studies from personal experience was included as well.
The slides are available both as PDF and in executable form (Win32, built with Unity). Note that the slides were only built to support the speech.
I will add YouTube link here once the Assembly event organizers upload seminars there.
