Founder and chief technology officer of Bespoke Innovations
Scott Summit is the founder and chief technology officer of Bespoke Innovations. Founded in 2010 in collaboration with an orthopaedic surgeon, their focus is to create individualized artificial limbs that the patients themselves can choose and personalize. With more than 20 patents to his name, he has held faculty positions at Stanford, Carnegie Mellon and Singularity University. He is also the founder of industrial design firm Summit ID.
Scott explores the intersection between the body, human needs, and technology. He founded Bespoke to experiment with impact of design on un-designed products. Opportunities afforded by new technology tools allow the creation of customized products, based on business models previously considered unimaginable. 3D printing, owing to the versatility inherent in the process, allows to rethink medicine, innovation, space travel, business models, and its potential for improvements in quality of life on a grander scale.
