Hardware poses some serious design development issues not usually associated with tech - how to prototype, get consumer feedback and iterate?

Combining physical design with user interface - create an open API to be truly adaptable and exciting!

The panel says haptic displays and texture feedback may be big in the future but simplicity and user-focus should be the number one priority.

Why are user interfaces of design tools so frustrating and unintuitive - market size and development time but could B-school students help?
