We’re always talking about the future of design, the future of technology, the future of MAKING. In a world where we can interact with empty space, a world where we can 3D print our own shower curtain rings and bionic ears, a world where we’ll be sending people to space for vacation, how do we find the next ‘big thing’? Maker Galaxy is a show that explores the crossroads of Design, Technology, and the Future of Making.

In this episode we’ll be talking to TED speaker, author, and Autodesk Fellow Tom Wujec on how he jumped from a scientist role to a creative director, how we can innovate more effectively, how he helped bring the popular Sketchbook Pro digital sketching app to market, as well as gain deeper insight into his popular Marshmallow Challenge TED presentation.

We’ll be discussing:

  • From Scientist to Creative Director
  • What is the Marshmallow Challenge?
  • How to Innovate
  • Systems-Based Design
  • The Making of Sketchbook Pro
  • Where is Design Going?
  • …and more!

Stay tuned for next week’s episode where we’ll be talking with Stephen Ambroise, CEO and Founder of Asius Technologies. Asisus Technologies’ revolutionary earpod system led it to be one of the Wall Street Journal’s Top 10 Startups of 2013. We’ll talk with Stephen about thinking outside of the box to develop a revolutionary product.
