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 How do I make my own LEGO stickers?
For complex shape I use a Swivel Craft Knife (see the picture in the edit). It's really good for details and curves.

@craigmoliver That would probably break/bend the tip. Try it! :)

comment What LEGO wheels would look like the three types used on the JPL Mars Rovers?
This reminded me of an old BrickVista post where that guy build a Sojourner wheel out of Technic pieces brickvista.com/features/roverWheels/roverWheelsHome.html

comment What LEGO wheels would look like the three types used on the JPL Mars Rovers?
Thanks for the links. I'll dig around on Brinklink to see if I can find the right combination of sizes(ratio) and of looks. I'm also interested in the full wheel-tire BTW (not only the wheels).
