Building the Future of Power Tools Through Human-Involved Robotics
Ilan Moyer, Shaper
It took more than technological advancement to place a computer on home desktops in the 1980s, and in pockets and purses in the 2000s. In each case, a fundamentally new mode of interaction was invented to bend technology to its user. Learn how Shaper is making computer-enhanced fabrication widely accessible by creating new paradigms for how humans interact with robotic systems. Ilan Moyer will discuss how computer vision, augmented reality, and hybrid positioning enable Shaper to build fabrication tools that dramatically enhance the abilities of professional craftspeople and hobbyists alike, while feeling intuitively at home in their hands.
