JASON CHUA, Chief Truck Driver
On one fateful afternoon in Pasadena, California the paths of Daniel, design lead for Motorola?s Advanced Technology and Projects group, and Jason, co-founder of Stanford?s SparkTruck maker-mobile, converged in a parking lot at Caltech.
After a meeting that involved at least 15 slices of pie, they set out on an epic
journey across the country in a Velcro-covered van to see what would happen when they let college students loose with hackable smartphones and state-of-the-art tools, including 3-D printers and laser cutters.
Over the course of the six-month, 10,000 mile road trip that took them to 12 universities and all four Maker Faires?the MAKEwithMOTO tour?Daniel and Jason gained surprising insights on just how personal technology can become.
