Hypersonic Engineering & Design is a New York City based engineering and design studio. We blend engineering, science, art, and architecture to create groundbreaking interactive physical structures. We have developed musical instruments for Bjork, moving stage shows for U2, robotic store window displays, large new media sculptures for museums, and kinetic public sculptures. Hypersonic Engineering & Design works with visionaries to turn their dreams into amazing physical reality.
We also have a deep understanding of mechanical systems, aerospace technologies, consumer product design, and manufacturing. We have developed robotic furniture, research equipment for MIT, and wind turbine design and analysis services.
The 12th International Conference on Multimodal Interaction has published a paper about the MIT Speechome Recorder Project. Hypersonic developed the Speechome Recorder with a bunch of great group of people from MIT’s Media Lab including co-authors: Soroush Vosoughi, Matthew S. Goodwin, and Professor Deb Roy. Bill Washabaugh is listed as a co-author to the paper. More information can be found at the Speechome Recorder Page and the MIT Media Lab page.
