I'm a Senior Software Developer. I strive to be a polymathic person interested in a range of subjects which positions me as an Innovator, Problem Solver and Solution Designer.

I gained a broad set of experiences by programming since 1993 in different fields of engineering application. With a speciality in computer vision & CAD, I’m also the inventor of a US patent-pending algorithm in the field of Facility Management.

My current technology focus is on Cloud Computing, mobile computing and HPC. At home I do math, robotics and sculpting.

comment Is there a way to remotely operate the push-button light brick?
Will all the lights be reachable by a mechanical path (i.e. through the hollow buildings) or will some lights be only reachable by a flexible wire (i.e. snaking a cable to them)?

comment How much usage can a LEGO piece take before it loses its 'clutch power'?
Good points but, for this one, I'm focussing on the mechanical wear instead of the ageing effects

I have to say that, unless there was already data available, my plan was to build a robotic rig to test this.
