5 great BBC tech innovations that will change TV and radio forever: Oculus Rift, 4K and more
Pocket-Lint.com reports that the BBC has made the unprecedented step of opening up its innovations labs to public scrutiny in the form of BBC Taster, a web service that will host some of the corporation’s most experimental digital projects before they have been rolled out to all devices, in order to get feedback on their popularity and usability.
And as well as interactive, internet-based entertainment concepts, this extends to some projects the BBC has been trialling behind closed doors for a while – even those that use dedicated hardware to realise their potential.
Pocket-lint was invited to BBC Broadcasting House in London to try out some of the bigger, perhaps more long term projects the Beeb’s research and development labs have been working on. You can check out some of the more virtual projects yourself at bbc.co.uk/taster, but you’ll have to wait a bit longer to taste the BBC’s bigger projects. It’s worth it though as some of them could change the way we watch TV or listen to radio forever.
