Bruno's research focuses on converting physical objects into interactive surfaces using vibration sensors and AI

Bruno is an AI researcher, entrepreneur and artist. He is known for his work in the field of human-computer interaction, which focuses on converting physical objects into touch-sensitive, interactive surfaces using vibration sensors and artificial intelligence. In 2013 he founded Mogees Limited, a London-based start-up whose products enable users to transform everyday objects into musical instruments and games using a vibration sensor and a mobile phone. In 2017 he founded HyperSurfaces, a London-Los Angeles based company whose technology converts physical surfaces of any material, shape and form into data-enabled, interactive surfaces using a vibration sensor and a coin-sized chipset.
As an artist, he produces art installations around the world and performs occasionally with UK-based electronic music duo Plaid.
