How the sci-fi tech in Marvel movies influences real-world products


The lines between fiction and reality are blurry for John LePore.

As a futurist and creative director who works on both movies and products, LePore not only crisscrosses these borders — he helps shape them.

Much of his work has been done with Perception, a New York-based design lab.

The Emmy-nominated team creates future tech for sci-fi blockbusters and real-world devices, from gadgets in Marvel films to gauges for rocket ships.

The two worlds frequently inspire each other.

“It’s not a one-way street — it’s a never-ending loop,” LePore tells TNW.
