Dr Kate Stone Novalia

In 2015 Bloomberg Europe announced that Dr Kate Stone is going to shake up the world as we know it - in short, she's a game changer.

With a degree in Electronics and a PhD in Physics from Cambridge University; she founded the award winning lab Novalia in 2006 to explore the space where traditional print and conventional electronics converge, and has been living in that world ever since.

Some people expect the future to look like the film Minority Report; but Dr Stone believes the opposite - she wants to infuse our current analogue world with electronics so that everything looks like it always has…. except that it comes alive through interactivity. 

Imagine a world where a teenager’s bedroom poster comes alive with the launch of a new album, or an LP that enables you to DJ from the actual record sleeve itself?  This is the world Dr Stone is creating - by adding 'digital DNA' to everyday flat surfaces we take for granted, she is changing the world as we know it. 

"Dr Kate Stone is a Game Changer"

                                                           Bloomberg Europe

Using her patented interactive print, Dr Stone is adding interactivity and capacitive touch to everything from hats and mandalas through to packaging and books - and connecting them to the internet; she is creating a new frontier for traditional industries that we already know and love, and who until now have been locked out of the digital age. 

Dr Stone is not only dreaming of a better future but she's actually creating one, and her unique style onstage is endearing, authentic and unforgettable; we've the seen the most hardened tech audience stand up for a standing ovation.

The future is bright, the future is Dr Kate Stone.
