UI/UX: The Way of the Future

The year 2020 was not expected, All the distant aspects of working from home to the new wave of virtual reality have been the main design trends of 2020. As the result in 2021 online services are more popular than ever and this trend remains in the future. UI/UX practitioners have a big role to play to ensure they are creating a positive experience for the user by anticipating and fulfilling their needs. 

The whole world now is becoming more comfortable with Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality(AR), Voice, and Internet of Things (IoT) based devices, the design industry will design more for practical and seamless usage, less for graphics. The way is changing to approach UI/UX design.

What to expect next, the trends we’d like to see in user Interface and user experience in 2021. 

Future UI Trends

  1. Wearable 

These are electronic devices that you can wear on like an accessory or apparel. It can be gloves, eyeglasses, a watch, or even a suit. The key point of wearable UI is that it should keep your hands free and will not hinder your daily activities. Cicret bracelet and NailO are examples of wearable tech that show how UI’s are designed for wearable in which your skin might be the touch screen.

  1. Holographic :

A holographic is a three-dimensional projection that can be seen without any special equipment like a camera or glasses. This type of display utilizes light diffraction to create a virtual three-dimensional image of an object. Science fiction has provided a great platform for people to express their ideas and fantasies too. Iron Man and Avatar movies are the best examples of how UI’s are designed for Hologram.

  1. Autonomous :

The autonomous car is 35 years away from mainstream acceptance. But we can predict for sure semi-autonomous vehicles which mean intelligent cars with limited autonomous modes, but would still require the driver to take the wheel occasionally. Brands like Tesla, Volvo, Waymo & Google are working for these ideas. 

  1. Gesture-based :

Gestural UI is like pinching, scrolling, and tapping to operate an interface. It refers to gesture recognition, tilting, shaking, and eye motion. This technology has rapid progress from very basic recognition technologies with sensors that allowed product designers to introduce a whole new spectrum of solutions based on gesture recognition. And it is now a part of life for a huge number of people for example of Project Soli- a chip designed by Google. 

        5 Zero UI:

With Zero UI, the user’s actions, we as the user interact with content. Like speech, glances, and even thoughts and feelings could cause the system to respond. User interactions shift from the Control of physical devices to speech and gestures.

  1. 3D Interface:

We’ve seen 3D user interfaces in video games and movies, but the rise of AR, VR, and mixed-reality in digital products is presuming UX designers to experiment and implement 3D interfaces for real human interactions.

3D graphics provide another dimension to the look and feel of a UI but it takes a lot of expertise and time. UX designers customize them according to their needs.

  1. Design of Accessibility: 

In the world there are millions of people have a disability like speech, vision, hearing, cognitive, physical, and mental health disabilities. UX designers must address this gap when designing products.

Designers imagine themselves living in users and survey what features could help them use digital products more effectively.

Now many companies aware of the importance of accessibility in the past few years and are designing products with accessibility for all in mind. In the future, it will be easier to disable people to use products that have better user experiences.


As UI’s become more spontaneous and natural for the new generation of users. It will be overwhelming and, at times, exciting and it’s definitely something to look forward to in the upcoming technologies.

So how do you see the future? 

The evolution of technology is unending. It has brought many significant changes to human lives. The way users interact with products has evolved continually along with evolutions in technology. As design trends come and go, what matters are the principles behind UX design and our ability to redefine users’ user experience with the help of technology.
