SXSW 2019

Immersive Technology and the Next UI Revolution


With each great hardware revolution, technology has undergone an accelerated sprint of user interface and user interaction evolution. The explosion of immersive technologies such as augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) has served as a catalyst to begin this next UI evolution. This change, however, is just the beginning. As content becomes increasingly contextual and connected devices steadily embed themselves in our lives (IoT, connected home, tech enabled mobility, smart glasses, digital assistants, etc.), designers will need to reevaluate fundamentally how we interact with technology.
Join Unity Labs, Neurable, Booz Allen Hamilton, and Capital Factory for an exploration into the impending UI revolution and the future of UI in an immersive, connected digital world.
