Digital world is changing its home, and I am in search of an evolution that exists beyond the digital world.
In computing, everything happens inside this rectangular screen. I want to get the pixels out, paint the world, and allow us to interact with it.
We have created something incredible. You don't need to get your phone out anymore. Gear takes the entirety of your digital world and places it right where you can see.
We need to stop talking and start acting, and I am more than eager to be part of that change.
My lab is like a fantasy world - it is more like a 'James Bond' movie!
There is no link between our digital devices and our interactions with the physical world.
It's about time we stopped asking what the computer can do for us and instead ask ourselves what we can do for the computer.
For me, how an appliance looks is as important as how efficiently it works.
I have a background in technology, design, architecture, arts and sciences. I see myself as a multi-dimensional person.
For true augmented reality, the display would have to dynamically focus, which would require additional hardware on the glasses to read your eye.
Our time is a time for crossing boundaries.
Many of my projects are inspired by Indian mythology. We have read that in the ancient times, people could expand their body parts, extend arms - all of that reads like a dream. But all this can be done using technology based on simple solutions.
Whatever science fiction movies we watch now, we can make the technology real in two days. What we can do is not important. What we should do is more important.
Did you know that da Vinci was a painter, polymath, engineer, architect, biologist, and writer all rolled into one? He drew sketches of helicopters at a time when they weren't even invented!
What we strive for is how we can provide the best performance and best design, whatever the customers want.
Exposure to fields like design to technology and from art to psychology gave me a quite nice/interesting viewpoint to the world.
We've evolved over millions of years to sense the world around us. We use our five natural senses to perceive information. But the huge amount of information mankind has accumulated and stored online cannot be perceived by these senses.
When you talk about objects, one other thing automatically comes attached to that thing, and that is gestures: how we manipulate these objects, how we use these objects in everyday life. We use gestures not only to interact with these objects, but we also use them to interact with each other.
We are looking for an era where computing will actually merge with the physical world.
I think that integrating information to everyday objects will not only help us to get rid of the digital divide, the gap between these two worlds, but will also help us, in some way, to stay human, to be more connected to our physical world.
