Eric spends his days finding ways to make uWand’s core technology faster, smaller, more efficient and responsive.
“First you start to think ‘How does our system see the world? How does the world influence our system?’ Next, you think what are the key components of the system, how do they respond to the things they see. On the other side, we have to think what we want to reach is a useful remote that you can point with, and how do you bring those things together in a good way,” he explains.
The strength of Eric’s pre-development research enables Philips to quickly implement the uWand technology into any existing remote control, regardless of hardware design.
Here he explains what pre-development is and the types of challenges he faces.
