Inspirations

and computer vision experience persuaded me to
pursue research and industrial work in robotics.
- A man of many talents; he pushed the
envelope of progress in the artistic as well as
scientific realms.  At DigiPen, the
engineering lab in which I spend most of my
time was named after this great inventor.
