An Interview with Saeed Arida, Founder, NuVu Studio
May 23, 2014
3-D printing, one of the most popular technologies going theses days, continues to advance at rapid speeds. We are always looking for unique stories of what people are doing, and we certainly found one with Dr. Saeed Arida, who is the founder of NuVu studio in Cambridge, MA. Under his guidance, a team of students from a nearby school who recently worked on customized prosthetic hands for children. The transcript of our email interview is below:
1)What is your background and what made you decide to start a school such as NuVu Studio? Was it your first experience with 3-D printing?
2) How do you go about selecting the students? Do they apply to you, or do you recruit them? Is it a little of both? What types of qualifications are you looking for?
3) The word "hack" can be considered somewhat of a double entendre when it comes to technology and computers. Can you talk a little more about what hacking means to a project such as this one?
4) What do you think were the most rewarding parts of the project for the students and yourself? Have any of the hands been fully tested and put to use?
5) What other projects involving 3-D printing are in your future? What are some things you think we will see out of the industry as a whole in the next 5-10 years?
