“Physical interaction is the most essential for authentic communication.”

Eunah is a designer who dreams of a better future by changing how we experience the world. She discovered the emotional power of virtual reality while watching a documentary in which a mother was reunited with her daughter who had passed away, then simulated in appearance and voice by computer. Imagine a world where fusing technology and reality could create two-way interaction of physical objects: medical check-ups, feeling the texture of something, and even tasting food without actually eating it. Eunah believes integrating emotional experiences into technology can innovate solutions to complex problems. MITidm has given her the comprehensive knowledge base and broader perspective to test applications of her ideas within practical scenarios. Eunah has a Bachelor of Art in Industrial Design from Kookmin University.
