About Me

My Photo

I previously worked on Virtual Reality and other hardware at Valve.  I currently work at Google[x].

Prior to starting at Valve, I built computer peripherals such as keyboards, mice, and joysticks that were designed to be used inside MRI machines.  My company, Mag Design and Engineering, sold these devices directly to researchers at academic institutions who used them to publish scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals.

After work, I spend time on many different types of projects that usually involve circuit design, machining, material selection, and general fabrication/hacking.  My favorite place to be is my home workshop.

  1. Hello Ben, I need chat with you, please send me a email diretoria@pwmdobrasil.com.br

  2. Create a HIGH powered electromagnet, and talk about induction/flux. Try different frequencies and waveforms, and show it all on a scope. Awesome videos, keep up the good work.
