Mr. Michael Sinclair's main research interests include user interface devices for the PC, PDAs, and wearables; microelectromechanical systems for interface applications; digital photography using linear sensors; and haptic interfaces. Before joining Microsoft Research, Mr. Sinclair was an Institute Fellow at Georgia Tech and the director of the Interactive Media Technology Center, where he directed multimedia projects for Atlanta's bid for the 1996 Olympics, four dance technology projects with the Atlanta Ballet, Georgia Power's Economic Development Center, and a number of interactive museum systems. Mike also helped develop a number of surgical simulators, telemedicine systems, digital cameras, haptic displays, 3-D scanners, and 3-D motion-capture systems. He was a founding engineer and manager of future products at IVEX Corporation, where he helped develop visual systems for flight simulation and ASICs for real-time image processing. Mike was also a research engineer at Georgia Tech's Research Institute and a toll terminal engineer at Western Electric Corporation.
