Voice, Cameras & Sensors, Oh My!

Our digital world is currently ruled by GUIs (Graphic User Interfaces), but is about to be inundated with NUIs (Natural User Interface) and VUIs (Voice User Interface), or it already is.  As UX Designers we are only beginning to understand the possibilities and skills required to master designing for these new paradigms.  

Here's who we have presenting thus far...

Daniel Plemmons
Developer Experience Engineer, Leap Motion
Interaction Guide for Gestural Interfaces
Once the realm of science fiction, gestural interfaces are becoming more ubiquitous every year. This talk will cover some of they key challenges facing interaction designers working with gestural interfaces; design processes to mitigate these risks; and touch on real world examples of gestural interface design today.

Reid Evans
Design Strategy Manager, NewDealDesign 
A UX Blueprint For Everyday Life + Wearables
The proliferation of wearable devices is upon us – how and what succeeds will be determined by their design.  Learn to devise a strategy to take on the challenges that connected devices present to everyday life.  

Stephen Gay
Innovation Catalyst, Design Manager & Strategist, Intuit
Evangelizing and Designing Voice User Interface: Adopting VUI in a GUI world
Apple’s Siri and Google Now have ignited consumers’ interest in VUI by delivering valuable and delightful customer experiences. Innovative companies can leverage VUI solutions to create a competitive advantage. But how do you drive the adoption of VUI in an organization with a long GUI-only history? We'll share the frameworks we used to evangelize VUI to help you start your own grassroots VUI movement.

You won't wanna miss this one!

    Would be cool to invite some UX leads from Meta (spaceglasses dot com) and OculusVR to come share a bit about the challenges they're addressing with their tech and prototyping efforts.
