About

I’m Matthew Borgatti – a mechanical and industrial designer with a background in animatronics and robotics. I’ve had a hand in everything from creating precision spacesuit components as a NASA subcontractor to developing durable lightweight drone shells for Google X’s Project Wing, animatronic snakes for Snakes on a Plane and microscopic habitats for water bears.

This page displays my portfolio highlighting recent work. I’ve put personal projects up on the blog if you’re interested in what I do when I’m not solving problems for clients. You can read more about me here.
