I am Leandro. This is my digital shed: a place where I can leave a trace of some of the things that excited me during a +20y path as technology designer.

I was often lucky and found myself in the right place at the right time, for example, when:

  •  I led the design of the first UI for a 3G (smart) phone ever; 

  • I led the small team that patented an eye-gaze user interface to control a computer (via a contactless eye-tracker);

  • I contributed to a patent about small displays video optimization. 

  • I rebooted the adventurous times crossing AR/VR borders through the NTT immersive technologies. 

I am thankful for the attention during my 100+ talks and conferences with 175K+ aggregated Slideshare views.

I am still in love with my 15+ years spent in design thinking, the few patents I contributed, my dirty dozen Awards, and all the books I wrote or contributed. Everything was possible because of the team I was part of, and I remember all the faces of the colleagues with whom I have tried to build a better world together, a single technology at time.
