Emerging UX Interfaces

Back again with another list of articles from around the web to inform and entertain. This week we are focusing on the topic of next generation user interfaces. What comes after mobile touchscreens?

The smartphone was a revolution, but innovators are looking for the next big opportunity – in augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), the Internet of Things (IoT), voice, and smart devices. As with any new space, firms are weighing whether to be first movers or a fast followers, while technology providers are working to quickly deliver content and services to these new platforms.

To understand the disruptive potential of these new technologies, we recommend you take a look at a recent infographic created by our partner Photon:

Voice Interface vs Visual Interface

So – these articles do a pretty good job of fleshing out the new technologies we’re likely to see in the near future and how they might challenge our design expectations. But what happens when these new interface technologies get mixed up with  artificial intelligence? A good example of the is Google’s new Duplex technologies which combine AI with voice technology to create a virtual assistant that can make actual phone calls on your behalf. Amazing or just plain creepy? You be the judge. Check out this mind blowing video from CNET and let us know what you think:
