With the advent of IoT, VR, autonomous vehicles, AI, blockchain, chatbots, embedded health monitors and voice assistants, it's clear that the future for tech and product design is definitely not based on a phone or laptop's 2D graphical user interface. Instead, the future is all around and even inside of us. The role of designers has evolved to encompass plotting end-end total physical and digital customer experience, all based on fundamentally new ways of interacting with technology and ecosystems of connected devices. To get there, as product designers, we must aim to solve users' underlying needs against a 5, 10 and 15+ year timespan.
This meetup is for product designers, developers and researchers of all types who are interested in designing this future so that we can meet and share ideas, tips and our work with each other.
