Alex Olwal

I design and develop interactions and technologies that embrace digital and physical experiences. I am interested in tools, techniques and devices that enable new interaction concepts for the augmentation and empowerment of the human senses. My research projects are from exciting times and inspiring collaborations at different research labs and institutions, including MIT Media Lab, Columbia University, University of California, KTH (Royal Institute of Technology), and Microsoft Research. At Google x, I conduct applied research and development of novel and exotic input and output mechanisms for wearables, and explore associated interaction techniques. My goal is to expand expressiveness while avoiding interference with user's experience of the physical reality. Research projects:
