Nadya Peek is part of the physics and media group at MIT media lab. She's particularly interested in designing and building affordable machines that would allow individuals to make accurate measurements of their surroundings. Now, these machines are huge and incredibly expensive. If we can create machines that you can easily carry around with you, and are accurate, we could actually say something about the world around us, instead of just make guesses.
