Description

Robotics and games are my two greatest loves, so I try to stay as close as I can to the cutting edge
of both. I’m a believer in the long term potential of VR & AR tech to bring a lot of value to the world
too; my drive in this area is to cut through the gimmicks and deliver as much of that potential as I can.
General purpose robot simulation is a new area I have been exploring the last couple of years, I find it
particularly exciting because the new technologies Unity have been introducing recently open up so
many new possibilities that traditional robotics simulators cannot approach.
