About me
I am Yosuke Ushigome, creative technologist based in London. I create future visions, build proof-of-concept prototypes and design new interactions. I currently work at Takram, a design innovation firm based in Tokyo, London and New York as one of the directors. Driven by both love and concern in emerging technologies and their influence on us, my interaction design practice tends to straddle multiple stages of product development; from concept through prototyping to real-world deployment. By doing so, I facilitate in-depth understanding of the implication of emerging technologies and encourage better-informed decision-making on our future.

  • Zensei - Making tangible the experience of an MIT Media Lab's new touch sensing technology
    Zensei - Making tangible the experience of an MIT Media Lab's new touch sensing technologyWe collaborated with MIT's Camera Culture Group to design and develop their embedded, multi-electrode bioimpedance sensing technology Zensei. Zensei enables physical objects to identify users by sensing the body’s electrical properties and touch/grasping behaviour through electrical frequency response sensing. It allows almost any object to be capable of user recognition. For example, a phone that unlocks as it is picked up. The sensor hardware is small in size and works by sensing the electric
