Laurie Alaoui, a 57-year old student at the General assembly, a coding education program, started on this dream when she was inspired by a TEDtalk on augmented reality and gesture technology called SixthSense, developed in the MIT Media Lab, according to this article by Selena Larson from The Kernel magazine.
