This talk will focus on two projects that are collaborations between HXD , MIP and the NEXT groups. They illustrate David’s rare capabilities to work both in a “traditional” design role, as well as engage on a deeply technical level, both in software and hardware.

In the first project, with the Chira team in MIP , David has been working to help develop refined experiences to test the boundaries of the technology – a highly accurate, real-time hand tracker. He has built and explored a number of novel interactions, bridging the gap between the interests of HCI and Machine Intelligence through a grasp of both. Through his work he is helping define a roadmap to ensure that the tracker remains the state-of-art in the field.

The second project, Disruptive Displays, is a collaboration with the Sensors & Devices team in NEXT . The project questions and subverts general assumptions around the properties of displays, reimagining them as malleable material that can be cut and shaped, rather than devices that are fragile and unyielding. This project’s ambition is to create displays that can be shaped into freeform surfaces, scaled seamlessly, and integrated within the built environment, affording multiple new avenues for design and a new platform of technology, tools and interaction for Microsoft. David will demonstrate early prototypes from this project, and describe their potential path to manufacture.
