Hayes Raffle is a technology innovator specialising in developing new computing devices. He is UX lead for new hardware on Google's AR/VR team Daydream.
As COVID-19 continues to change the world we live in, our experiences and interactions with technology are also evolving.
An award-winning product designer and inventor. Hayes will take us on an adventure through fine arts at Yale, a Ph.D. and M.S in Media Arts and Sciences from the MIT Media Lab, 80 US patents either pending or granted, to senior roles at Google, and on to his recent travels around the world researching technology use.
In his keynote, Hayes will examine how bringing technology closer to our bodies can make it begin to disappear, and share insights gained from some of his projects from the past 15 years including Google Glass and Daydream VR. He will show how tangible technologies like the Topobo construction kit can put creative technology directly in children's hands and share observations from global travels which led him to connect with New Zealand as a fellow in the Edmund Hillary Fellowship.
