Hugh Elliott

Hugh Elliott is a Creative Technologist and podcaster. His focus has been on hardware and physical interactions. He also produces two podcasts; Can’t Sell This and Dismissed. In the first, he chats with driven individuals about creativity, process and staying inspired. In the second, he and his guests try and pull the curtain back on the psychology of being let go from your job.

Side Quests: Satisfy Your Distracted Self

Inspiration can come at any time and Hugh decided long ago to embrace it. From building a 2-axis plotter in his basement to proposing a “party glove” because the idea of blasting music out of your hand sounds really fun. Or designing an open source light bar to create large-scale light painting and running a year-long photography project to support the LGBTQ+ community. Random doesn’t need to be intimidating. Sometimes you just need to say “yes” to yourself. Let’s follow the journey of the perpetually distracted Hugh and witness the wonder he creates.
