Is it time to say farewell to our mice and keyboards? That is what Leap motion claims. In the past months, we have heard of many promising projects aiming to substitute mouse or keyboard input to a personal computer – an aspect of HCI discussed and researched for over a decade. So what is the […]
I would like to think of myself as an Electronic Systems Engineer. I obtained my MEng degree on Electronic Systems Engineering from the University of Essex back in 2001. Going back to my University days, apart from classes and modules I worked on several projects including Autonomous Robot Design in the VASE lab and Peripheral Device Interfacing. The later included developing GUIs to manage devices through Serial/USB connections and Core programming for Serial or USB data transmissions to Interface these Devices to PCs.
Currently, I am working in AT&T Global Network Services as a Sr. Technical Specialist on VMWare Hosting Operations for End User Computing. Previously I was focused on IT Service Management for IT Operations and Hosting & Application Environments. My key function was Problem management in a vast IT environment leveraging ITIL v3 practices.
Since 2011 I contribute to Synthetic Toys, a virtual lab working on HCI/AR/VR/UX and Wearable Computing. Also, in the past I contributed to Innovative Frog, a small lab which was implementing Web Design & Web Applications.
Between 2005 and 2012 I worked in EMI Music in Infrastructure & Desk Side Services, where for the last 2 years I was the Local Technical Lead for the site located in Greece.
Prior to that position I worked in Svimservice Hellas S.A., from 2001 to 2005, as a Systems Engineer and Infrastructure Manager, mainly in a large public sector project.

With the constant development of Mobile Applications for handheld devices there are quite a few solutions and frameworks out there for developers, but these solutions always refer to closed OS environments. On the other hand, there is […]
Many people, we are sure, remember the early days where everyone was struggling to setup their PC in a way that it had two Operating Systems (Windows & Linux) on a Dual Boot mode. People may still struggle for that matter! If it was correctly setup GRUB would display an option to choose the OS to boot. […]
During the Christmas break, we got a visit from some friends, along with their two kids (2 years and 5 months old respectively). What stood out during their visit, was how children discover, understand and use current technology. Here is how it all started… During one of our endless discussions, next to the fireplace, about […]
