ProductTank HK #11: User interface beyond the screen. Capturing new markets

Most products focus on the sense of sight. However there is an under/ unserved market of folks that require an user interface very different from just the graphical user interface (GUI). This talk co-organized by ProductTank and Inno Space will look at other UIs such as tangible UI and voice UI. The main focus will be on voice and how it has evolved and how it can pair with existing product features to create a much better experience for users in general.
