Next Generation User Experiences event on June 28 in Brussels – free registration

You’re designing or building applications and want to fast forward to get ready for the next generation of user experiences? Join us on June 28 in Brussels Business Faculty for a free event!

Technology is becoming more natural and intuitive. Touch, face- and voice-recognition, movement sensors – all are part of an emerging field of computing often called natural user interface, or NUI. Interacting with technology in these humanistic ways is no longer limited to high-tech secret agents and Star Trek.

During this event, you’ll get inspired by Microsoft’s vision and strategy for natural user interfaces – see what today’s and tomorrow’s technologies can bring! In addition, you’ll learn from the UX experts what it takes to build applications that feel effortless in their use and that are optimized for emerging technologies. Finally, we have invited a number of companies that will showcase their next-generation user experiences and will demonstrate what is possible already today!

And what’s more, you can get some hands-on touch experience with a series of Windows 7 Slate devices or enjoy our exciting Xbox Kinect experiences!

Special: prize draw of Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse

There will be a very nice prize draw: it’s your chance to win one of the Microsoft Arc Touch mouse. Your presence is your chance to win!

Cease this opportunity to take your applications to the next level, and make them more natural! Register today for this event and meet-up with other UX professionals. It’s free and you’ll get an exclusive T-shirt!
