About the Author
Sean Kean is an artist and entrepreneur living in Brooklyn, New York. With a background spanning engineering, art, education, and travel, he is passionate about simplifying complex technology in order to make tools more accessible to others. Insatiable in his curiosity, the author has filled his passport as a flight attendant, rediscovered learning through play as an early childhood educator, studied the streets and buildings of New York City in order to earn both a taxi driver license and real estate sales license, and has been programming well enough to be dangerous for more than 20 years. Sean is currently working to bridge the gap between the physical and digital worlds at HERE, Inc. (http://here.st), to bring volumetric 3D TVs mainstream with the VoxieBox (www.voxiebox.com), and to help professionals working with volumetric depth cameras, software, and displays to connect to each other through the Volumetric Society (www.volumetric.org) via a publication, conference, and local chapter meetups you can help set up in your city.
