Adam Kumpf plays a fundamental role at Teague as a physical prototyper, combining his passion for making things with his technical expertise to prototype and explore experimental user interfaces, forms and functionality. His unique approach blends software and circuitry with fast form giving, all of which he shares and discusses with designers, developers, hackers and online communities whenever possible. Previously Kumpf attended MIT where he conducted research with Rodney Brooks in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. He also worked closely with Hiroshi Ishii in the Media Lab on Trackmate, an open source, do-it-yourself tangible user interface. From MIT, he earned a bachelor’s and two master’s in electrical engineering, computer science, and media arts and sciences.
