Interpretation of the future in Science Fiction has become a reality and increasingly more available to the mass market. How can designers prepare for today and tomorrow’s successful design in a world where technology is catching up with the future visions from the past? Professor Lee talks about design methods that can help designers navigate at the intersection between design and emerging technologies to design for the future.

Professor Lee is interested in how progressive user interface, such as augmented reality can influence our daily lives. A former UX Designer at Microsoft, Lee took part in the design of Skype's HoloLens companion experience. Previously, at the MIT Media Lab’s Tangible Media Group, Lee has explored system design for collaborative drawing and sharing 3D information in virtual settings. Lee is currently an assistant professor at Carnegie Mellon School of Design where he teaches vision-driven interactions and progressive user interface design.
