Wearable Computers


Making a holographic computer is hard. Making it small enough to wear on your head without wires is even harder. Making it comfortable and one-size-fits-all is almost impossible. Learn about the challenges of designing and engineering wearable technology like HoloLens. A few students will also be able to try HoloLens on!

Meet the Speaker:

Josh Mendoza is the first in his family to go to college. He graduated from Stanford in 2015 with his B.S. in Product Design Engineering. He's currently a Mechanical Engineer on Microsoft HoloLens. It's the first fully self-contained holographic computer, enabling you to interact with high‑definition holograms in your world. If he's not 3D printing parts he's designed or laser cutting stuff, he's probably traveling to Asia to build stuff. #LifeAsAnEngineer
