I’m MIT Technology Review’s IT editor for hardware and software and enjoy a diverse diet of algorithms, Internet, and human-computer interaction with chips on the side. Working in our San Francisco office, I cover new ideas about what computers can do for us, whether they spring from tech giants, new startups, or academic labs.
My journey to the West Coast started in a small English town called Wantage and took in the University of Cambridge, Imperial College London, and five years writing and editing technology news coverage at New Scientist magazine.
Intel researchers and a University of Washington graduate student demonstrate how a depth-sensing camera and palm-top projector turn an ordinary work surface into an interactive one. The researchers demoed the system, dubbed Oasis, at the ninth annual Intel Research Day, held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA.
