Modern interactive technologies are opening up a broad new world of wonder and experimentation, and bleeding edge demos and installations are an endless source of inspiration. But how do you respond to the client who wants "that crazy tech-demo thing I saw on YouTube" or that fantastic device/interface from the latest science fiction film? How would you build that? Could you build that? Should you build that? Darren David, Stimulant's CEO, will aim to demystify some of the art and science behind everything from Kinect hacking to building-size projection mapping, and give you real-world ideas and advice that will help you turn inspiration into real-world magic.
For over 15 years, Darren has traversed the blurry edges at the intersection of technology and design, exploring nearly every conceivable project role as both client and contributor. His rich and storied career has wound from paper to pixels to people, across a myriad of companies and ventures that ultimately led to several "world's firsts" and awards. At Stimulant, he provides business, vision and experience design leadership for an inspiring team of like-minded compatriots and pioneers, from whom he learns something new every day.
