Looking Glass Factory, Inc
Alex Hornstein grew up with a soldering iron in one hand and a butterfly net in the other. Later on, he went to MIT to study electrical engineering and computer science and spent the next decade circumnavigating the globe and working on a wide swath of different inventions. In 2014, he co-founded the holographic display startup Looking Glass Factory, where he works as CTO and runs the company’s R&D lab focused on lightfield imagery, very large lightfield displays, and holographic interaction. When he’s not in the lab, you can find him on the tops of a mountain or at the bottom of the ocean, but always with his wife and daughter.
