Mixed Reality Specialist
Lee Kent is a University of Reading graduate with a BEng (Hons) in Electronic Engineering. Since then he has completed an IET accredited graduate scheme and spent a year as part of a Virtual Reality Research and Development team. He is currently a PhD candidate researching Augmented Prototyping with the Design and Manufacturing Futures Lab at the University of Bristol and is a resident at the Bristol Virtual Reality Lab.
Lee has been looking at how Mixed Reality technologies can be utilised to make complex design tasks feasible for everybody. This has included ventures from the small with configurable, personalised video game controllers to the very large, with citizen designed cities. He is working towards integrating the physical and digital domains to democratise design, utilising simple physical design kits and complex integrated analytics to get the best out of both.
