Dave Icke joined mc10 in March 2009, as the company’s first Chief Executive Officer and served until 2014. Based near Boston, Massachusetts, mc10 is a venture-backed advanced materials company focused on commercializing stretchable silicon technology. At the heart of mc10 is the ability to design and develop high performance circuits that are capable of being stretched, wrapped, and deformed continuously while maintaining their core function. The technology harnesses the electronic characteristics of single-crystalline silicon and leverages the well-established semiconductor foundry infrastructure to open new possibilities for the most demanding use cases. mc10 works with partners to enable products for novel cleantech, robotics, imaging, and biomedical applications. Prior to mc10, Dave was VP of Marketing at Advanced Electron Beams, a venture-backed cleantech company which makes the green factory of the future both possible and profitable. In parallel, Dave also served as the VP of Sales and VP of Engineering during different periods of his time at AEB. Prior to joining Advanced Electron Beams, Dave held several general management roles at Teradyne, a leading supplier of automated test equipment to the semiconductor industry in Boston, Massachusetts. While at Teradyne, Dave ran the Wireless and Consumer Business Units within the Semiconductor Test Division, with responsibility for annual sales of up to $500M. Before Teradyne, Dave held a series of customer-focused roles over eleven years with KLA-Tencor Corporation, the leading supplier of process control and yield enhancement solutions for semiconductor manufacturing based in Silicon Valley. Dave integrated an acquisition as VP of Marketing of the Electron Beam Review Division at KLA. Previously, Dave was Vice President of Marketing for the Wafer Inspection Division, KLA-Tencor's largest business. While at KLA-Tencor, Dave led several joint development projects leading to successful introduction of new products and technology in markets across Asia, USA and Europe. Earlier in his career, in applications engineering management roles at KLA, Dave worked closely with customers worldwide to introduce new wafer inspection products and manufacturing strategies. He began his professional career at Cypress Semiconductor as a Process Development Engineer. Dave received his Bachelors Degree in Chemical Engineering from Stanford University and his M.B.A. from Harvard Business School. He has a passion for productizing innovative technology which enables customers to change the way they do business.
Can I wear my computer like a second skin? (David Icke)
Science Kit for David Icke
Thank you for your interest in the Science Kit for my talk "Can I Wear My Computer Like a Second Skin?".
During the course of my story I described the ability to reshape electronics in a way that allows electronics to conform to us instead of us conforming to electronics. I believe this opens an entirely new frontier of innovation for electronics to improve health care and further our understanding of the mysteries of the human body.
I didn't provide a great deal of technical information given the spirit of TEDMED and the time available, so below are several links that can provide that extra detail for those of you interested in learning more.
Please contact me directly with any inquiries, as MC10 is looking forward to forming new partnerships and further our mission of reshaping electronics to advance quality of life.
