12:15pm Sneak Peeks and prizes
All Adobe Evangelists

Adobe engineers are encouraged to develop their own ideas of future features for the tools no matter how whacky they are – some of them eventually find their way into the products and some... well maybe they are a little too futuristic. For example – content-aware fill was once just a whacky sneak peek. Look into our crystal ball and see the latest batch from our ingenious devs of half-baked potential future features held together with sticky tape and rubber bands – some are incredible, some just defy description, but they will all amaze you!
