Jun Rekimoto received his B.A.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. in Information Science from Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1984, 1986, and 1996, respectively. From 1986 to 1994, he worked for the Software Laboratory of NEC. During 1992-1993, he worked in the Computer Graphics Laboratory at the University of Alberta, Canada, as a visiting scientist. Since 1994 he has worked for Sony Computer Science Laboratories (Sony CSL). In 1999 he formed, and has since directed, the Interaction Laboratory within Sony CSL.

At Sony CSL, Rekimoto initiated and has led the "Real-World User Interfaces" project since 1994. This project produced several notable research accomplishments, including NaviCam (a situationally-aware mobile assistant), Pick-and-Drop (a direct-manipulation technique for inter-appliance computing), Multiple-Device Digital Whiteboard, Augmented Surfaces, and TimeScape (a time-machine user interface environment). Some of these are being commercialized in Sony's VAIO personal computer series.

Rekimoto's research interests include computer augmented environments, mobile/wearable computing, virtual reality, and information visualization. He has authored dozens of refereed publications in the area of human-computer interactions, including ACM, CHI, and UIST. One of his publications was recognized with the 30th commemorative papers award from the Information Processing Society Japan (IPSJ) in 1992. He also received the Multi-Media Grand Prix Technology Award from the Multi-Media Contents Association Japan in 1998, the Yamashita Memorial Research Award from IPSJ in 1999, and the Japan Inter-Design Award in 2003. In 2007, He elected to ACM SIGCHI Academy.
