Not many people can list soft robotics and fashion design together on the same resume. But then Leanne Luce isn't like most people.
For starters, she neither let her "prototypical female" self hinder her from tinkering in her carpenter father's workshop nor attending fashion school. In fact, this intersection of fabric and technology became the precise foundation on which Luce has built her career in product.
Today she is the first-appointed Product Manager at Voodoo Manufacturing, a Brooklyn-based startup that is bringing affordable, scalable 3D printing to the masses.
In this episode Leanne opens our eyes to the worlds of soft robotics, exoskeletons, and 3D printers and shares the lessons she's accumulated on her journey from design thinking to product mindset.
