On August 3, 2012, Kicker Studio held its 3rd Device Design Day conference. This year’s conference was a resounding success. Over 150 attendees gathered at the gorgeous San Francisco Art Institute for a full day of inspiration. From robots that get things done to jinn to haptic prototypes to a bionic eye, D3 had something to offer everyone.
This year, Kicker Studio chose to focus the day on a topic close to home: Natural User Interface. As Jennifer and Jody explained in their opening remarks, the “Natural” in NUI is synonymous with “real” or “human”. Kicker’s message for D3: We are all at the frontier of product design, and it is time to teach technology to speak human.
