These include wearable technology, optics, robots, a wireless headphone line called Buttons, and much more. Despite all of his fame and success, he has never forgotten his roots. His foundation, i.am.angel, is based in his hometown of Boyle Heights, California and is transforming young lives by creating opportunities through robotics and STEM education.
