Hi! I am Harpreet and I am a Software Engineer at the Experience Engineering Group at Moonraft Innovation Labs. I research, build and bring to life creative solutions. My research interests are in the field of Human Computer Interaction with a keen focus on Novel Interaction Techniques, Rich and Immersive Experiences, fusion of Design with Technology and blend of Digital with Physical world. Prior to this, I was a Research Intern at the Advanced Development Group at Microsoft Research India. My work has been featured in leading national dailes and magazines, and in popular online blogs/websites, and has also received many awards and accolades.
I love the interwebz/webernet and completely fantasize about using it in the most creative ways to build powerful solutions, clubbing it with other areas. With a background in Electronics and Communication and rich experience in computer software solutions, I am equipped to apply the skills, with branches clubbed together to build ingenous solutions. I am interested in building stuff with novel interfaces, sensors, haptics, and the web. My attention all of suddenly comes back to the earthly world on hearing the words such as interaction, imagineering, inventing and innovating.
I am a fan of DIY and have recently started engaging with OSS community, and appreciate how the creators/tinkerers/hackers have enabled the crowds and brought participation/contribution/building/creating spirit to the fore.
I have also spoken at various events and conferences about my projects and technology. For a list about my speaking engagements, please visit the following link. Apart from technology, I am an avid traveller/explorer, a bon viveur foodie and also seldom do calligraphy. Other than that, I fantasize about space travel, pervasive computing, aliens and data streams in that order ;)
