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.

@Ambo100 I'm looking for a virtual building software (like LEGO Digital Designer or LDraw). Your link (even though I didn't know it and it's really cool) seam to be a SNOT technique listing

comment How can I make a working pin tumbler lock?
I thought of that. Sliding a beam under the read rounded beam would do the trick. The beam would be attached to the fixed part of the mechanism and, using LEGO elastics, would slide under the red beam when the mechanism rotates from under the driver pins. When the key is rotated back, that beam would be pushed out of the way, freeing the driver pins to move down. The beauty is that, when the right key is in, all the driver pins are flushed (same height). This is a lot easier to manage.

comment Are the X-Pods balanced?
@Joe Wreschnig I'm ok with that. It's like you other question (bricks.stackexchange.com/questions/365/…) and if we had the game rules we could answer this question. It would be cool to analyse this.
