Making More Senses of UX (workshop)

with Alastair Somerville

Making More Senses of UX is a 1 hour introduction to what multimodal and post-screen UX means; both the opportunities and threats in designing across all of our 9 senses. Using his experiences and research in designing for people with different sensory and cognitive capacities, Alastair Somerville will take you through some short sensory and mindfulness exercises to explore what UX and usability in a world of wearable and smart environment devices could mean.
