In our session Up in the air Adam will talk about how drones will soon be part of our everyday lives and one of the largest platforms for innovation. He will discuss how future drones will interact with us at a very intimate scale. By exploring the concept of wearable drones – drones that interact with our bodies – Adam shows us how this form of technology will transform society by impacting how we feel, behave and interact with our surroundings, and each other.
Adam Pruden is an interaction designer at Frog. There he leverages his architectural and technology background to conceptualize, speak and write about potential applications for airborne technologies and its impact on society. Adam takes a designer’s approach to understand the wonderment humans feel from the sky and the resulting objects and systems we build. He strives to unlock the story behind these curious inventions and the trends they reveal for our future.
Prior to Frog, Adam was a Research Associate at MIT’s Senseable City Lab where he launched swarms of flying pixels and investigated the relationship between our bodies and flying objects.
