In 2009 I started EyePC Wearable Computers after making my first Head Mounted Display system. It was a monocular piece that clipped on to my glasses that at first took video input from my iPod Touch, but then later was connected to my Motorola Droid. I then started attending MIT’s Entrepreneurs Club and became a startup case in Sem. 089 at MIT. Since March of 2010 I have been doing some work at MIT’s Soldier Design Competition advising on Augmented Reality systems and wearable
computers. In September of 2010 I began working (with the Soldier Design Competition) on an aerial Augmented Reality system based off of the commercial ARDrone. I have also been working with the Microsoft Kinect in developing Natural User Interface applications and virtual movement systems in my life long dream of building the Star Trek holodeck. Software wise, I have been working with the Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Nexus and other Android devices to be able to run multiple operating systems on a rooted Android device within a virtual environment, or be able to dual boot the other operating system. My main goal in doing this is to open up development for mobile devices, so users with Android devices can take advantage of software from other platforms.
More recently, I have been working with Epson on the Moverio BT-100, which is a transparent head mounted display system, which allows me to operate an Android device (which is being seen through the glasses) and still perceive and function in the “real world”. I have competed in the 2012 and will be re competing in the 2013 Soldier Design Competition with a laser data communication system specialized for military applications that can send data at up to 1Gbp/s and securely send audio and text data.
Since October of 2012, I have been working on an unnamed startup working on embedded cluster computing systems, which basically means taking many ARM based processors and combining their resources and processing power to provide a low powered and high performance computing solution at a significantly lower immediate and long term cost. I will be premiering this technology at SXSW 2013, and will be having a public launch of the technology in the Summer of 2013.
Most of my work is inspired by Science Fiction, and I hope that my work will be able to make these dreams of many possible.
