Hanif Montazeri has always been obsessed with devices. Growing up in Iran, he and his brother loved to make electronic gadgets. Over the course of two summers in the late ’90s, they even designed and fabricated an electric, 18-wheel toy truck that could turn, signal and move at speeds of four km/h by voice command. And while Montazeri was pursuing his PhD in mechanical engineering at the University of Toronto in the mid-2000s, he was “always looking for the next great product.”
