  • David is an inventor and mathematician who loves to solve fundamental problems. After reading Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time in eighth grade, he devised a simple way to test the theory of general relativity. While studying Applied Math at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, he worked for NASA. Frustrated by the limits of 3D design – where it takes an hour to create what a five-year-old can do with a lump of clay in five minutes – David left his PhD program to start Leap Motion.
