In this session David Birnbaum will discuss how touch feedback in UI and UX design provides new opportunities to think creatively about the current two-dimensional digital devices experience.

Engaging the sense of touch adds an entire dimension to the user experience. For developers this new palette enables a new form of experiential creative expression. David will talk through use cases where touch tech has spur innovative thinking around digital experience. David will also discuss how designing touch interfaces is a skillset both separate from and tied to visual and audio experience.
