Introducing the Arcade Coder – Back Us On Kickstarter

Superpowers Series: Lori-Lee Elliott

Technology gives us great Super Powers. Every month we feature a new super hero who has used technology in a creative way. This month we feature Lori-Lee Elliott, founder of Future Sight AR.  Lori-Lee is a creative problem solver who has travelled the world and loves to help people do things they couldn’t do before using Augmented Reality (A/R) technology.

What is your superpower?

Creative problem solving.

What or who inspired your superpower?

My dad inspired me. I grew up moving and I’ve lived in more than a dozen countries, seeing all these different places and people and how they solve everyday problems was really inspiring to me.

What has been one of your best inventions/creations?

Our augmented reality app is one of our best creations. It’s called The Bridge and it provides digital tutorials on how to do things in augmented reality. A/R is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user’s view of the real world.  We say that The Bridge can give anyone superpowers because it allows you to do things like make the perfect batch of cookies, fix your bike tire, or something really technical like installing a generator, that you couldn’t do before. 

"When I finished school, I never thought I'd go into tech."

How has technology changed what you do and influenced your life?

When I finished school, I never thought I’d go into tech. I was a science writer and have degrees in psychology and forensic anthropology but I’d never taken a single coding course or computer science credit.

I use technology everyday in my life, but largely took it for granted. When I started working in industrial engineering & construction, I found that we didn’t use a lot of technology (surprisingly) and I realised that while my life was fairly tech-saturated, not everybody was. I began to see so many ways we could innovate and make people’s lives better, so that’s what I set out to do.

What is your favourite Tech Will Save Us kit?

The Thirsty Plant Kit and the Electro Slime!

Will Tech Save Us?
