UX SPRINTS Launch & Sensory Technology Debate - 23rd February 2017
The inaugural 2017 UX SPRINTS User Experience competition has now launched. This competition is designed to inspire the next generation of future-thinkers by inviting them to consider innovative ways of improving the interaction between people and digital devices. By exploring the empathy between the human body, design, science and the senses we pose the question: Is it possible to trigger ongoing shifts in the way space is perceived and experienced?
This Launch and Networking evening will be an opportunity for students, academics, sponsors, partners and judges to mix and discuss how the UX methodology and creative technology can be used to re-engage with the consumer. The competition theme is SENSES and Holition will host a panel debate which will tease out ideas across industry sectors which could provide inspiration for competition applicants.
