Introducing Tob

The Wailing Wall, Jerusalem, Israel

Welcome to the home of Tob. I'm of germanic-hungarian descent, currently living in the Federal Republic of Germany, also known as Old Europe. I grew up in the Big Äpple and now live in Darmstadt. My areas of interest and expertise include computer graphics in general, real-time rendering and augmented/mixed reality. I am a 3D graphics researcher at the Fraunhofer IGD.

In my free time I like to read myths from around the world like the Edda, Beowulf, the Gilgamesh Epos, and in particular legends from ancient egypt. I am also a huge fan of all Discworld books by Sir Terry Pratchett, Neil Stephenson's Cryptonomicon, The Anubis Gates by Tim Powers, Frank Herbert's Dune and the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin. I am an old-school streetboarder. My ears are attuned to electronica, breakbeat, 604/psy and progressive rock. If you have any questions or comments regarding my publications, feel free to contact me (public key) at:
