Tom Rodden

An Impact! People case study from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

“My impact will be not to have an impact,” says leading digital economy researcher Professor Tom Rodden.

It may sound like a strange notion. But the world of ubiquitous computing is about seamlessly...

Aimin Song

An Impact! People case study from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

Imagine a cheap, reliable mobile phone you could fold into your back pocket, a TV that just rolled up for storage or electronic paper.

These are just some of the products that are being made possible by...
