Aler Gu, Founder and CEO of Dexta Robotics, owns dozens of global patents and focuses on building the next-generation communication and interaction system based on spatial computing.
He was selected by Peter Thiel, an angel investor of Facebook, as one of the 20 entrepreneurs aged under 20 to receive the Thiel Fellowship; at the age of 22, he received UNESCO Netexplo Innovation Award; he was also selected by Bloomberg as one of the 25 inventors and entrepreneurs aged under 25.
Aler Gu has followed the old path of most “geniuses”. Since primary school, he has started inventing different gismos. In his second year of the University of Cambridge, he dropped out and founded the company today.
He is leading his team to explore the next-generation computer technology, creating “reality” for our “virtual world” with the birth of the world’s first set of wireless force feedback glove system. Wearing the gloves, we are able to learn to cook on our sofa and paddle and surf in the virtual game space.
Creativity is a luxury. According to Aler Gu, the core force driving his continuous exploration comes from his protection of creativity. This era needs bold pathfinders and tolerance and protection of creativity.
