Alexia McKenzie's Social Links
Alexia McKenzie is known for her wearable… that’s implanted into her hand.
The young designer and engineer sees the future as being readily at your fingertips. She has programmed a webcam to her phone to tell her when someone is knocking at her door and installed a sensor to tell her when a letter arrives. She Lyfts to work and keeps a tablet open to Instacart. And when her mom was having difficulties getting out of the shower, she made her a heated bath mat to ease the transition.
But managing all of this is hard. So she had a tattoo artist implant a magnet under her skin so she could easily control metal objects. It’s all just a part of the future.
As of September 2015, McKenzie is working in a hardware design firm in San Francisco. She graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2003.
