Founder and CEO
After studying mechanical engineering in Beligum and Canada, I started my carrier in Paris, as a Software Engineer at Coventor. There, I mixed mechanics, 3d modeling, MEMS and user interface to produce the latest mycrosystem design and simulation tool, MEMS+.
In parallel I've created and growth Augment, an Augmented Reality platform on iOs and Android to help visualized a product before buying it. (http://augmentedev.com)
Those experience gave me the opportunity to develop my skill set and I'm always eager to tackle new technical challenge in pioneer area.
I'm also one the co-Organizer of AR Paris (http://arparis.org), an event taking place in Paris every two month with the purpose to create an ecosystem around Augmented Reality in France.
I created Augment as a way to bring augmented reality to the world in an useful way. By going further than the usual gimmick, Augment is intended to bring a real value to its users by letting them visualize a product before buying it.
Initially developed on Android, Augment is now available for iPhone and iPad.
It started as an internship in the Mechanical Engineering Area. After being exposed to some lacks in the analysis of the results provided by the automated engine test bay, I started the development of a solution by coding an analysis tool in VBA, on top of Excel. This tool would get the result from the Oracle database and run some computation daily to tell the failure rate and the cause of those failures.
