Ole Miss alum Sly Lee makes Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list

Oxford native and University of Mississippi graduate Sly Lee landed a spot on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list this year for his groundbreaking work in developing augmented reality hardware.

Lee, who graduated from Oxford High School in 2007 and earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in pharmacy from Ole Miss, lives in Los Angeles where he co-founded tech company Emerge.

While augmented reality is nothing new, Forbes selected Lee for his work in developing AR hardware that allows users to physically touch virtual objects without wearables or controllers.

 

“Instead, it uses a proprietary tech to create precise force fields mid-air,” according to Forbes. “This allows users to physically feel shapes, volumes and even textures.”

Not bad for a 28-year-old.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a very good job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer. Outstanding Blog!
