Disney’s Dr. Ivan Poupyrev hired by Motorola to work on future devices

Ivan Poupyrev

Motorola has been a big innovator in the mobile industry. And with the Moto X, the innovations just continue. The Moto X was the first device to come from the efforts of the company’s Advanced Technology and Products department, so it’s the perfect place for someone like Dr. Ivan Poupyrev.

You may know Dr. Poupyrev from his recent project at Disney’s Carnegie Mellon university lab. He made interactive plants that “sing” when touched. He was also named one of the world’s most creative people in 2013. It sounds like an excellent fit for a division that’s trying to change how we interact with our smartphones, something the Moto X has already contributed to.

I can’t wait to see what cool things come from Motorola, especially with Poupyrev included. I’m sure there will be plenty of innovation. What are you looking forward to from Motorola’s next project? Leave a comment!

    Dr. Poupyrev worked for NSA a few years ago

    If he was employed by the nsa, then he really didn’t make that big of a leap. Motorola owned by Google, Google owned/controlled by nsa.

      He might be reactivated to introduce backdoors into Moto devices. Nsa is a mighty and dangerous organization, its the new KGB

  • renyo

    Clearly he came up with something that Motorola was psyched about!

    Something is going down.
