A product design method that designs all the user interface (UI) to operate on a smartphone and separates it from the hardware. The device has a built-in NFC tag and displays the UI on the smartphone by touching with a smartphone. Everyone has a smartphone today. In ExUI design method, since the product has only the function and the UI is externalized on the smartphone, the product can be personalized and customized.
