ENVISION THE FUTURE OF
INTELLIGENT PRODUCTS & MOBILITY

After decades of gradual progress in the field of machine intelligence, recent developments in computer hardware have triggered a dramatic improvement. The widespread integration of AI not only challenges conventional design workflows but also forces designers to rethink products and explore new creative avenues.

The impact of AI extends far beyond autonomous vehicles and image generation tools. It is changing the functionality of products and the way we interact with them. Traditional design parameters are being reevaluated as AI introduces new freedoms and complex challenges. For example, while user interaction becomes simpler and requires fewer buttons and interfaces, the underlying product complexity may increase to facilitate these interactions.

A thrilling challenge for us all!

YOUR CHALLENGE  (UNTIL JULY 2ND) :

Develop innovative new products, everyday items, or transportation solutions that seamlessly incorporate artificial intelligence.

Challenge the status quo and dare to fundamentally revise aesthetics and ergonomics.

• How can I improve the user experience?

• How can I increase functionality?

• How can I push the boundaries of design aesthetics?

Use your creativity and technical skills to shape the next generation of intelligent products!

The designs should not only reflect current "Best Practices" but are also encouraged to visualize future trends and visions.

Have fun! We look forward to your participation and your output!
