HP Sprout :: Lead Creative Technologist

One of the most interesting projects i worked on whilst at Native Design, the leading Integrated Product designs, was to completely redesign and attempt to reinvent the concept of a traditional home-based pc for their client, HP. The work done was under strict NDA but the product is due to be released at CES 2015. The platform was Windows 8 but the majority of features required constant communication with Microsoft in order to enquire whether certain features and settings could be modified or enhanced. The project included the research and implementation  of an extra ordinary array of technology, and with it challenges, including dual Windows 8 touch screens, object recognition and gesture and voice control, Bluetooth LE etc. The project also included the creation of a modified Windows 8 experience so I also was responsible for recruiting the necessary XAML developers. The project was run in an agile, sprint-based environment that utilised both GitHub and HipChat. In addition i was also involved in the creation of concepts for the HP 2015 Laptop range. https://youtu.be/IBnf_lHxPdE https://sprout.hp.com/ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/news/11408538/HP-Sprout-is-this-the-future-of-desktop-computing.html It also was considered one of the top 10 items launched at CES 2015:
