Mike Knuepfel is a product designer that uses his diverse background in 3D modeling, physical prototyping, creative coding, and electronics design to create unique and innovative devices (some useful, some experimental). Mike spent the better part of 2013 in Shenzhen, China as a part of the HAXLR8R hardware accelerator program, working to develop a new smartphone-enabled interactive learning toy. Mike is especially fascinated by the potential for 3D printing and digital fabrication methods to revolutionize the way objects are manufactured and consumed by the public. Contact Mike if you want to start an entrepreneurial venture, prototype specialized hardware, design 3D gadgets, jam on Unity3d tutorials or talk about the Furby.
