Small maker projects

YouTube channel

On my youtube channel I post small maker projects with links to the code and some explanation how I made it and foremost the reasoning why.

increase maker enthusiasm

Nerdland Makertalk

Together with Kurt Beheydt, I visit makers in a search for what keeps them busy and what the definition of 'maker' actually is - if there is one.... The podcast is availble on most podcast apps, Spotify, Apple and Google podcast

increase science enthusiasm

Team Scheire

At Team Scheire, the television program on Canvas where Lieven Scheire engages eight makers (engineers, designers, scientists and programmers) to jointly develop creative and concrete solutions for everyday problems that people experience because of a disability or other problems, I focus on wireless, battery operated solutions.

inspiring others

Public Speaker

At public events such as TedX Antwerp, I try to inspire others. By discussing certain research topics for a general audiance or visions on life. I think it is the task of every academic to inspire people.

improving life and industry

Entrepreneurship

I have founded / co-founded multiple companies, levering my knowledge in a relevant industrial field. The last ones are `WeSDeC, Aloxy and CrowdScan. Transforming an idea or technique in a relevant business model and being challenged by the requirements of customers and applications to make the business a succes triggers an ever growing will to improve.

improving life and educating others
