Skyborn Research looks beyond the next product cycle, identifying trends and technologies that will emerge in the next three to five years. We develop applications and prototypes that imagine the impacts these changes will create, and we share those prototypes to facilitate innovation and thoughtful consideration of the future of media, technology and the arts.
Skyborn Research students work in interdisciplinary project teams including interactive media, computer science and psychology majors. This combination enables teams to deal with complex challenges from different angles.
Skyborn Research focuses on the future of technology. At the same time, the outcomes of our projects are real, working prototypes.
Skyborn Research focuses on the relationship between digital technology and physical interaction, and keeps the human aspect at the core of the innovation process.
Skyborn Research has a dedicated group of mentors who work with our project teams on a regular basis. These mentors are industry leaders who share in our vision and provide an important industry perspective.
Skyborn Research encourages an open, informal, highly collaborative environment within the lab, and in our contacts with industry sponsors. We follow a shared IP philosophy to enable open ended collaboration and development.
