Ever wonder what your user test subjects really think of an interaction? Are they just being nice? Trying to score an easy gift card? Join Isobar for a hands-on journey to discover how users really feel about digital interactions. We will demonstrate how to use biometrically-aided user testing to uncover the inner joy, frustration, and fixations of each tester, and get closer to reaching customers on a deep emotional level.

In addition to biometric user testing we will explore techniques that allow us to gauge the emotional resonance of user experiences. And, to make this real, we’d like for you to participate in a quick 5 minute exercise called MindSight. Results will be shared at next week’s event.
MindSight, Isobar’s revolutionary method for studying unconscious emotions, is an image-based, rapid response technique. We’ll explain more next week, but for now, all you need to know is that you are going to see images appear rapidly and you need to select images that complete a sentence. It’s FAST…and for good reason.

Go To to start the MindSight exercise. Please complete by Monday, July 23.
