      Lee Jin-ha, a researcher at Samsung Electronics, has been selected as one of the "Innovators Under 35" in the September/October issue of MIT Technology Review.

      TR35 are "young geniuses on a path to change the world." Larry Page and Sergey Brin, co-founders of Google; Jerry Yang, the founder of Yahoo; and Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, were all once named as young innovators by the magazine.

      Lee (27) is Korea's fourth TR35 entry after Ham Don-hee, a professor of applied physics and electrical engineering at Harvard University (2008), Kim Dae-hyeong, a professor of Seoul National University (2011), and Rebeca Hwang, a Korean Argentine who has founded a venture fund that supports start-ups in Silicon Valley (2013).

      Lee was credited with developing the "space top" technology that allows users to "reach inside" the screen on a 3-D desktop and "flip through digital documents and windows," without having to use a mouse or a keyboard.

      He attracted global attention last year when he introduced the technology at TED Talks, the world's largest knowledge-sharing event.
