According to a change in his Linkedin status, Richard DeVaul, founder and president of AWare Technologies, has taken a job as a Senior Prototype Engineer at Apple. Computerworld reports that DeVaul has a Ph.D. in Media Arts & Sciences from MIT, where he focused on “new human-computer interaction techniques for wearable, mobile, and portable applications.” DeVaul’s dissertation was on a head-up display called “The Memory Glasses,” which used subliminal visual cues to boost test subjects’ performance on memory recall tasks by as much as 63% without the tester being aware of any stimulation at all. Computerworld claims that DeVaul will be working under Jonathan Ive in special lab focused on wearable computing technology.
