Member Since:

I am the founder and CEO of Synthiam Inc and former founder and CEO of EZ-Robot, as you can tell, also super passionate about robotics and community. I spend as much time on the forum as possible to help others build robots. Most of my inspiration comes from people here! I envision a future of Synthiam powered robots living among us... Aiding the elderly and disabled, or simply being a friend. Robots are our future :) The world is ready...
