About this event

Dr. Micah Yairi is the Co-Founder and CTO of Tactus Technology, Inc.  Tactus is bringing a new user interface to consumer devices and displays – dynamic touch surfaces that enable buttons to rise up on demand out of the screen.  When not needed, the buttons recede back into the screen, invisible, returning the display to its original clear, flat surface.  Prior to founding Tactus, Yairi led development efforts for microfluidic transdermal drug delivery systems and advanced optical sensors for Los Gatos Research.  Dr. Yairi also founded Fortnight Solutions, a business-to-business “match-making” service that helped engineering companies locate solutions to technical problems. Micah received bachelor degrees in engineering physics and economics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Cambridge, England where he earned a master’s degree in economics, and earned his PhD. at Stanford University in Applied Physics.
