My name is Radu Motisan, and I was born in '82. I am trained as a software engineer, with a master degree in Computer Science from West University of Timisoara received back in 2007. My university years brought me in the beautiful city of Timisoara, where I live today, together with my wife.
I work as a freelancer and I have a wide interest for technology. Besides what my school years taught me (mostly mathematics and informatics), I also have knowledge of electronics, physics and chemistry.
To summarise everything I'm here because I like technology and the potential of new, innovative things.

Building an autonomous robot using a rover platform and advanced electronics is not an easy job. Here is a robot that follows its user. A companion, very much like a robo-dog: <a href="http://www.pocketmagic.net/2013/02/android-controlled-robot-part-2/"; target="_blank">http://www.pocketmagic.net/2013/02/android-controlled-robot-part-2/</a>;
