Creator

We?re part designer, part food revolutionary and part roboticist. We?ve solved some of the most complex mathematical and engineering challenges to bring the world technology that can touch billions of people. Creators are a motley crew of engineers, culinary scientists, human-centered designers, machinists, and tested fabricators. We?ve come from institutions like MIT, Stanford, Berkeley, and some of the best junior colleges in our great nation. We?re formerly of places like NASA, Disney Imagineering, the Navy, Chez Panisse, and A?s Burgers. We came together to elevate something so intimate to everyone: food. In order to do that, we created design values for what a dining experience could be, set the bar for what culinary instruments could do, and defined new engineering possibilities. But we?re just getting going. That means that we got a chance to make history by building a better future. It?s an exciting time: while tech has made wonderful progress in drones and autonomous cars, an experience more common than driving, eating, sits in a constant state of tension. That?s because it?s a big, hard problem to solve. Technology must conform to nature, not the other way around. It?s both precise yet subjective; art has to meet science.
