  • Tesla Hires Microsoft’s Top HoloLens Designer in Its Team
 

Tesla might be working towards augmented reality.

Tesla has recently included one of the top designers of Microsoft in its own team. The newly recruited designer include the Andrew Kim which is a HoloLens industrial designer and will be leaving Microsoft soon to join Tesla.

It is said that Kim will be taking the job of Lead Designer at Tesla. This news was also confirmed through his LinkedIn by Slashgear. Kim had been working with the Microsoft from the past three years and is actually a graduate of the Art Center College of Design. 

He has recently worked at Microsoft on the HoloLens headset which is actually an augmented reality wearable. The project is really important as Microsoft is trying to push the Windows getting Holographic.

Other than this, Kim was also very much involved in the design of Xbox One S before working on the headset. 

We are not sure yet that exactly what kind of projects will be given to Kim at Tesla. Tesla has a very planned and innovative journey to cover in the coming future thus it can be regarded that Kim will surely put his experience to good use at this innovative company.

Tesla is working on the upcoming launch of Tesla Model 3 which is said to be the most affordable EV made by the company. However there are so many other things up the sleeve of the company as well.

They have announced earlier this year that they are working on the concept of a Roadster. Musk had teased an EV pickup truck as well in past.

Kim might be an important part of redesigning the interiors of the Tesla models. The models have been criticized publically for offering little in the cabin as compared to other rival EV makers. Thus we might see some kind of augmented reality based design work by Kim in new cars.
