John’s work is recognized for its “excellence, innovation and enhancement of the quality of life”. This work insists that capabilities critical to humans living in a digital world can come only from sufficient evolution of the human-machine interface (HMI). For more than two decades he has built digital systems incorporating dextrous input, bidirectionally-expressive graphical elements, an aesthetics of constant dynamism, and the basic computational acknowledgment of physical space. At Oblong Industries, he leads development of the g-speak software platform, which enables the construction of distributed, collaborative, gesturo-spatial systems. Among these is Mezzanine, a workplace solution whose multi-surface environment is ideally suited to hyper-visual collaboration among co-located and distributed teams. John holds a PhD from the MIT Media Lab. His foundational work there included innovations in optical and electronic holography, real-time computer graphics systems, large-scale interactive visualization techniques, and the I/O Bulb and Luminous Room systems. He brought these ideas to Hollywood, serving as science and technology advisor to films including Minority Report, Hulk, Aeon Flux, and Iron Man, before founding Oblong Industries to develop real-world versions for the commercial market.
